The sacrococcygeal approach is the simplest epidural infiltration technique and has one of the lowest complications rates. The caudal epidural infiltration is currently one of the regional analgesia techniques that are mostly performed for chronic lumbar pain. This infiltration consists of an injection with a mixture of local anesthetics and corticosteroids in the epidural space…Details
Our Spinal Specialists are leaders in the techniques of minimally invasive spinal surgery. We offer treatments that avoid the need for large skin incisions or muscle damage. We have expertise in performing most operations including disc replacement or fusion through tiny incisions that allow rapid recovery and return to full function.Laser disc surgery, Balloon Kyphoplasty, Ozone spinal therapy, Endoscopic discectomy, keyhole disc replacement surgery, stem cells for spinal disc and facet joint degeneration, spinal epiduroscopy, spinal injections and pain management.
We specialise in avoiding the need for open spinal surgery. Our specialists have a proven track record in targeting the source of pain without skin incisions. We perform Nerve root blocks, facet joint injections, caudal, lumbar and cervical epidurals and other needle treatments. Denervation and Radiofrequency procedures are routinely undertaken.
Laser Discectomy: PLDD is a minimally invasive laser treatment performed using local anesthesia for disc hernia/protrusion. During the procedure, a thin needle is inserted into the herniated disc (the target of the tip of the needle is the center of the disc called nucleus pulposus) under x-ray guidance. The protruding disc is vaporised to free up nerves without the need for open surgery.
Spinal epiduroscopy involves the use of a fibreoptic camera that is inserted through a needle device into the spinal canal under local anaesthetic to target areas of pathology in the spine. Under direct camera vision, most disc prolapses, scar tissue or nerve inflammation can be targeted and relieved rapidly. Very few specialists in the UK are trained in this procedure.
The Regenerative Centre provides advanced treatments for degenerative conditions such as Osteoarthritis, Joint and Spine pain from worn discs and Ligaments. Adipose derived stem cell treatments, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy. Viscosupplementation for joint lubrication and other techniques are used to enhance healing and promote regeneration.
An epidural injection is usually highly effective in more recent conditions and has a lower success rate when the problem is longstanding. In a few cases, an epidural injection may offer little or no alleviation of pain. Each patient is different; however, there are times when the injection can be repeated after a few weeks…Details
