Interventional Pain Management Q&A

What is interventional pain management?

Interventional pain management is one of the treatments for pain. Instead of medications and physical therapy, interventional pain management uses injections and minimally invasive procedures to help you get short- and long-term relief. 

Dr. Silver is a skilled neurosurgeon with years of experience helping people get relief from their chronic pain condition using advanced interventional pain techniques and minimally invasive spine surgery. 

He believes patients should know all of their treatment options for their pain condition to make an informed decision about their care. 

When do I need interventional pain management?

You may need interventional pain management if you have a chronic pain condition and conservative care like oral medications and physical therapy no longer ease your discomfort.

Dr. Silver does an in-depth consultation before making any specific treatment recommendations. He needs to fully understand your symptoms and accurately diagnose the source of your pain so he can effectively treat it.

He provides interventional pain management for pain conditions that involve the spine, like herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and sciatica. Dr. Silver may first try conservative treatments before moving ahead with interventional pain management therapies.

What are some types of interventional pain management treatments?

Dr. Silver offers many advanced interventional pain management options, giving him the ability to customize care. Some of the treatment options include:

  • Epidural injections
  • Facet joint injections
  • Sacroiliac joint injections 
  • Nerve blocks
  • Radiofrequency ablation

These procedures involve injections into the spine. Dr. Silver uses fluoroscopic-guided imaging when performing interventional pain management procedures to ensure accuracy. Patients of Silver Spine & Neurological Center — Interventional Pain Management & Spine Surgery report significant improvements in their pain and quality of life after treatment.

In some cases, Dr. Silver may combine interventional pain management treatments with minimally invasive spine surgery to ensure lasting pain relief. 

For patients with pain that fails to improve with injections or other interventions, Dr. Silver may recommend a spinal cord stimulator (SCS). This device uses mild electrical stimulation directed at the nerve causing the pain, disrupting transmission to the brain.
