Fluoroscopy is a radiology technique that takes a real time "movie" of the body. A continuous X-ray beam is passed through the body part being examined and is transmitted to a TV-like monitor so that the body part and its motion can be seen in detail.
At South Palm Orthopedics, fluoroscopy is used so the doctors are able to do any injections under X-ray guidance. Our fully equipped fluoroscopy suite allows us to do minor procedures and treatments right on site.
This means that procedures that normally would have to take place in a hospital or pain management facility can be achieved in a more relaxed setting, right in our office.
The fluoroscopic guided spinal injections for low back pain, sciatica, disc herniations and spinal stenosis performed right in our office include:
- Facet Injections
- Nerve Root Blocks
- Sacroiliac Injections
