Epidural steroid injections are a safe and efficient way to treat common back pain symptoms that can arise from the disks, the exiting nerves or the narrowing of the spinal canals.
In order to provide the highest level of care, our procedures are done at an outpatient surgery center. Patients lay comfortably on a surgical table. The area is prepped in a sterile fashion. Fluoroscopic guidance (live x-ray) is used to ensure proper needle position within the epidural space and is confirmed using a contrast material that is visualized on the fluoroscopy.
We recommend patients follow-up after one week of injection in our office and usually recommend continued physical therapy to prevent recurrence of symptoms.
