MetroHealth’s pain management experts help patients live the fullest lives possible through a full spectrum of therapeutic and diagnostic interventional spine techniques.
These techniques consist of fluoroscopically guided procedures that target the nervous system and allow the physician to not only identify the source of a patient’s pain but also to relieve that pain.
In many cases this enables a patient to avoid surgery and in others helps identify what would be the most appropriate surgery to offer.
Our interdisciplinary approach includes providing such procedures to allow patients to fully participate in their rehabilitation. These techniques include
- Fluoroscopically guided transforaminal steroid injections
- Facet blocks as well as radiofrequency ablation of the cervical thoracic and lumbar spine
Our specialists are also experienced in Discography, IDET, Neucleoplasty, and were among the first physicians in Cleveland to offer Spinal Cord Stimulation, making MetroHealth one of the leading providers of this technology in Northeast Ohio.
We can also treat the severe pain caused by cancer that has spread to the spine with Intra Thecal Pump technology.
