The Primary procedures performed are termed interventional or minimally invasive pain management procedures. These include some of the latest techniques for addressing spine pain such as:
• Epidural and facet injections
• Media branch blocks
• Selective nerve root blocks
• Sympathetic nerve blocks
• Provocative discography
• Radiofrequency neuroablation
• Spinal cord stimulator and pain control implant trials and placement
With the help of fluoroscopic guidance, our physician's success rate is greatly enhanced with the above procedures. Additionally, the physicians are continually attending educational sessions, networking with other colleagues and researching clinical trials to stay abreast of the latest techniques in their field.
These procedures are performed at nearby Alpine Surgery Center, located at 3801 Lake Otis Parkway (907) 563-1555. This facility is staffed with a highly trained and experienced team and utilizes state of the art equipment to maximize the patient experience.
