Listed below are brief descriptions of some of the procedures that are an integral part of my practice.
Pain can originate from many different sources within the spine. Epidural steroid injection, selective nerve root block, sympathetic ganglion block, and radio-frequency lesioning are some of the spine procedures I utilize to treat pain originating from the spine. These procedures are commonly performed in an outpatient setting using x-ray imaging to assist in guiding the needle placement. Proper patient selection is the key to a successful outcome.
Prolotherapy is used for the treatment of tendon or ligament injuries
(e.g., Tennis Elbow). Various irritant solutions are injected into the surrounding tissue of the injured ligament or tendon. This promotes the tissue to repair itself by increasing the nutrient supply to the injured area. This procedure needs to be repeated more than once.
A FDA approved procedure involves injecting botulinum toxin into the affected muscles of the neck or face to help reduce spasms and improve muscle activity. The benefits of this treatment can last up to four months.
An effective procedure used to reduce spasms that are caused by neurological conditions such as stroke, spinal cord or brain injury. This procedure involves injecting phenol solution onto the nerve that supplies the spastic muscles.The benefits of this treatment may last up to a year or longer.
Electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction studies (NCS) are tests that help to detect diseases of muscles and nerves (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome, impinged nerves) that may cause numbness and weakness. These tests typically take 45-60 minutes.
