Fluoroscopic Interventional Procedure
When your pain is not relieved by usual medical care, physical therapy or other conservative management – or your pain is so severe that you can’t tolerate traditional care – then fluoroscopicaly guided interventional treatments may be the most effective and quickest way to stop the pain and start the healing process.
What is Fluoroscopy?
Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique that allows a physician to quickly and easily view the internal structure and function of a patient in moving images.
Minimally-invasive fluoroscopically guided interventional procedures, such as epidural injections, have become the standard for treating many significant spinal disorders, especially before considering any type of surgery. Frequently, they help prevent a condition from progressing onto a surgical situation.
Interventional fluoroscopy is performed in our state-of-the-art fluoroscopy suite, where we can provide expert and personal care to our patients in the comfort and convenience of our office.
These guided injections also help us identify the source of your pain. We customize each injection to meet our patients’ individual needs.
With these brief procedures we provide local anesthetic to numb the skin before using a fluoroscope to precisely guide a needle and inject medicine to reduce your inflammation. We may ask you to relax on the day of the procedure, but you may typically resume normal daily activities the day after the injection.
