Interventional Methods

Although pain medications may be recommended for some patients, our physicians employ procedures and interventional methods that offer complete and longer lasting pain relief. These alternative methods can reduce complications that sometimes arise from recurring medication use and include:

  • Blocks of the median branch nerves
  • Celiac and splanchnic nerve blocks
  • Cryoablation
  • Epidural blood patch
  • Epidural injections: cervical, thoracic, lumbar and caudal
  • Facet joint injections: cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacral
  • Ganglion impair nerve blocks
  • Intra-articular injections
  • Intercostal nerve blocks
  • Neuroma and scar injections
  • Neurolytic injections: subarachnoid and epidural
  • Neurolytic injections: intercostal nerves; facet joints; sympathetic ganglions, nerves and plexuses; other peripheral nerves
  • Paravertebral nerve blocks: cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacral
  • Peripheral nerve blocks
  • Sacroiliac joint injections
  • Superior hypogastric nerve blocks
  • Sympathetic nerve blocks: stellate, thoracic and lumbar
  • Trigger point injections
