Cervical & Lumbar Transforaminal Epidural Injections

Cervical and Lumbar Transforaminal Epidural Injections are an effective non-surgical treatment for those experiencing chronic spinal pain as a result of a diseased or damaged spinal disc. This injection is a needle-based procedure and requires no incision. In most instances, only a local anesthetic is needed.
To begin this procedure, the physician will anesthetize the area and administer a local anesthetic. Next, a contrast dye is injected into the affected area. This contrast dye allows the physician to ensure proper placement of the needle as the dye is visible using fluoroscopic (real-time x-ray) guidance.
Next, a mixture of anesthetic, saline, and anti-inflammatory medicine is injected around the area of the spine where the nerve roots exit the spine (known as the foramen). This mixture helps reduce the inflammation of the spinal nerves that are causing the pain. The needle is removed and a small bandage is placed over the injection site.
Cervical and Lumbar and Transforaminal Injections are safe alternatives to surgery and can be used to treat a variety of conditions as a result of Degenerative Disc Disease. These injections are performed as an outpatient procedure under light sedation or a local anesthetic by the New Jersey Spine Institute‘s team of Board Certified Pain Management Physicians. This non-surgical approach uses fluoroscopic guidance to ensure accuracy.
