Scottsdale Minimally Invasive Spine Procedures by Dr. Sham Vengurlekar and the Premier Pain Institute provide individualized care to each patient based on their unique diagnosis. Dr. Vengurlekar. and the staff there believe that each patient should be treated as an individual and with the upmost care and consideration.
Just one of the many pain treatments that the Premier Pain Institute offers are transformational selective root sleeve injections. This minimally-invasive treatment consists of a small injection of a local anesthetic that is coupled with a small injection of a local steroid that is injected close to the nerve station, spinal cord and disc. This therapy is ideal for treating a specific source of root pain, but it can also be used to assist in isolating a patient’s source of back and leg pain.
When a nerve root becomes compressed and inflamed, it can oftentimes produce back and/or leg pain that is truly distressing to the patient. This minimally-invasive spine procedure offered by the Premier Pain Institute can help to determine which nerve is causing the pain symptoms as well as to provide relief from the pain caused by the nerve or nerves.
One of the biggest advantages to this procedure is that it is completed in just about an hour. The procedure is fairly quick and after 30 minutes of rest time in the recovery room, the patient is free to go about their daily lives. All of the down time associated with traditional spinal procedures is eliminated through the minimally-invasive transformational selective root sleeve injection.
