Epidural Injections in Santa Clarita
Epidural injection are performed for bulging or herniated disc of the spine for Chronic Pain.
For certain pain conditions, Dr. Grewal may recommend an epidural injection to provide short or prolonged relief from pain or inflammation. Typically, a medication such as an anesthetic or steroid is injected into the space around the spinal cord called the epidural space. For most patients, the injection can reduce pain and swelling in and around the spinal nerve roots. Some patients have found that damaged nerves healed over time.
Epidural injections are done at Santa Clarita Surgery Center in Valencia, CA.
What to Expect During a Procedure
The procedure for an epidural injection is straight forward. Dr. Grewal makes sure that patients understand where he will place the needle and how he determines the best placement for pain relief. For accuracy, our Santa Clarita epidural specialist may use fluoroscopy to get a better understanding of where to place the epidural injection. After imaging, the needle is placed in the specified target area to give the patient relief from pain.
During the epdiural injections, Anesthesiologist is also available to give sedation if patient is anxious.
