Procedures may play a role in your treatment. At Lotus Spine and Pain, we use state of the art equipment and safety procedures. The goal of a procedure is to accomplish one or more of the following:
- a significant improvement in function and your quality of life
- finding the source of your pain, allowing us to tailor our treatment
- helping to decrease the amount of oral medication needed
We carefully select the medications used during the procedures. Unfortunately, even many pain doctors are unaware that some commonly used medications in pain procedures are toxic to myocytes (muscle cells) and chondrocytes (cartilage cells.) We care about your long term health and well-being, and only use medications that have been proven to be safe and effective.
Some of the procedures we perform include the following: Epidural Injections, Facet Joint Injections, Radiofrequency Ablation (Rhizotomy), Spinal Cord Stimulation Therapy, Discograms, Minimally invasive disc decompression, Transcutaneous Electrical Stimulation, Knee Injections, Shoulder Injections.
