I spent the morning watching Dr. Lewis
conduct a selective nerve root block in the Pardee Pain Center
. The center provides treatment for chronic pain and diseases of the spine. The Pain Center offers a variety of treatment options for chronic pain and diseases of the spine including x-ray guided diagnostic and therapeutic injections, medical management, facet, sacroiliac and nerve root blocks, spinal cord stimulation and opioid management. The procedure I saw, went quickly so I took some photos of the technology used to aid in the procedure. This link will give you some insight to what a nerve block
is as well.
