I strive to deliver to my patients a wide range of efficacious procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of pain. In doing so, there are certain precautions that must be taken.
The balance of the radiofrequency and injection procedures I perform are done in an outpatient radiological facility, utilizing local anesthetics and intravenous medication for sedation—sleep — as needed, and a CT scanner for guiding the placement of needles and electrodes. For certain procedures, a short acting intravenous narcotic—an anesthetic to relieve pain—is given along with the sedating medication.
These procedures are performed using sterile technique and no antibiotics before the procedure are needed in patients with heart valve problems.
Of particular note:
The procedures may all be repeated if the therapeutic effect wanes.
Patients may usually return to work within one-to-two days following any of these procedures.
