Interventional Pain Management
Interventional pain management is a rapidly evolving field that offers hope for patients suffering from chronic pain. One of the most promising techniques for managing cervical and lumbar pain is radiofrequency neurotomy. This minimally invasive procedure uses heat generated by radiofrequency waves to destroy nerves that transmit pain signals, providing long-term pain relief. Another effective technique is discography, which involves injecting a contrast dye into the spinal disc and then using imaging techniques to determine the source of pain.
At LA Health Solutions in Baton Rouge and New Orleans, our team of experienced interventional pain management specialists has helped many patients find relief from chronic pain using these techniques. We are committed to staying up-to-date with the latest advances in interventional pain management and using the most effective treatments for our patients.
Radiofrequency neurotomy is particularly effective for patients with chronic pain in the cervical and lumbar regions. During the procedure, a small electrode is inserted near the affected nerve. The electrode heats up and destroys the nerve, preventing it from transmitting pain signals. Most patients experience significant pain relief within a few days of the procedure, with results lasting up to a year or more.
Discography is another useful technique for identifying the source of pain in patients with cervical and lumbar pain. During the procedure, a contrast dye is injected into the spinal disc, and then X-rays or other imaging techniques are used to identify any damage or abnormalities. This information can help guide treatment decisions, including the use of radiofrequency neurotomy.

We work closely with our patients to understand their unique needs and develop a treatment plan that is tailored to their individual situation.
