We offer the latest in Pain Management treatment and injections on an outpatient basis, delivered with extreme precision and care for highly effective, lasting results without surgery.

SPINAL PAIN INJECTIONS A SIMPLE ALTERNATIVE TO SURGERY

  • EPIDURAL STEROID INJECTIONS
    Our Board Certified Physicians perform this simple procedure using local anesthesia or gentle sedation and high-tech fluoroscopic guidance. This procedure can offer you relief from a pinched nerve in the back neck, or an irritated cervical or lumbar disc that has not responded to more conservative methods. The injection reduces swelling, so patients can experience a dramatic reduction in pain, tingling, numbness and other symptoms.
  • FACET JOINT INJECTIONS
    Facet joints are small joints in the back of your spine and one of the most common causes of chronic neck and back pain. Injecting an anesthetic and steroid in and around these joints can provide relief, significantly reducing neck and back pain caused by inflammation. Our Pain Management Doctors perform these injections using fluoroscopy to help ensure accurate needle placement.
  • NERVE BLOCKING INJECTIONS
    When pain in an organ or body part is caused by a group of nerves, this simple, minimally invasive procedure can block those pain signals and provide essential relief so that healing of the area can begin. Performed in our facilities by our experienced Pain Management Doctors, nerve blocks are used to treat chronic pain in the back, neck and spine. They’ve also been shown to reduce headaches, rib pain and hip pain from arthritis when drugs or other treatments are ineffective; additionally, they can help diagnose and target the causes of pain.

MAXIMIZE YOUR RECOVERY WITH OUR ADVANCED MINIMALLY INVASIVE PROCEDURES

  • RADIO FREQUENCY ABLATION
    Facet joints are small joints in the back of your spine and one of the most common causes of chronic neck and back pain. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) can reduce or eliminate the pain of damaged facet joints by disrupting the nerves that carry the pain signals. Using heat and electrical current, this minimally invasive procedure allows us to target the specific nerve tissue.
  • DISCOGRAPHY
    If you have severe back pain that has not responded to treatment, your Spine & Sports Medicine Specialist may recommend this minimally-invasive technique. Also known as a discogram, this procedure helps to determine if your pain is caused by one or more discs and enables your pain management doctor to identify other potentially effective therapies.
  • PERCUTANEOUS DISC DECOMPRESSION
    This minimally invasive procedure is an innovative alternative to spine surgery that reduces pain associated with sciatica, pinched nerves and a herniated or bulging disc. Performed using anesthesia and high-tech fluoroscopic guidance, your Board Certified Doctor removes a small amount of material from the painful disc through a small tube, diminishing the pressure from the disc and relieving your pain.
  • SPINAL CORD STIMULATION
    People who have neuropathic pain that has not responded to more conservative treatments may find relief in this minimally invasive procedure that uses electrical impulses to relieve chronic pain.

What Our Patients Are Saying

I went to Dr. Visco with severe sciatica from multiple disc herniations. I received treatments and therapy and feel 100% better. I have had surgery for the same injury over the past 17 years and have never received such high quality of care as I did in this office. – Kristin C
