- Endoscopic Discectomy (ELD) - lumbar disc tears, bulges, herniations, radiculitis or radiculopathy are treated by removal of target with grasper or vaporization with laser.
- Endoscopic Cervical Discectomy (ECD) - cervical disc tear, disc bulge, disc herniation or brachial neuritis is treated by removal of target with grasper or vaporized with laser.
- Endoscopic Lumbar Foraminotomy - bone spurs, scars, overgrowth ligament, protruded discs, and lumbar facet disease are removed with laser, radiofrequency or mechanical tools. The spinal nerves are released from surrounding structures, and the nerve hole is enlarged.
- Endoscopic Cervical Foraminotomy - Herniated disc, bone spurs, and scars in the spinal nerve canal are removed for nerve decompression. A laser vaporizes degenerative disc material.
- Laser Facet Rhizotomy / Endoscopic Facet Rhizotomy (Lumbar) - Laser light is used to deaden sensory nerve branches.
- Radio Frequency Facet Rhizotomy - A radiofrequency probe heats nerves to 80C to ease facet joint pain. Spinal Cord Stimulators - Programmable pulse generator sends electric pulses to pain area in spinal canal to kill pain.
- Facet Joint Blocks / Branch Nerve Blocks - Used for diagnosis of pain origin. Delivers anesthetic to a particular facet joint to determine if the pain dissipates.
- Spinal Discography / Discogram - A dye (contrast) is injected into each disc and the patient is asked if the contrast provokes his or her typical pain. X-rays of the dye help determine the presence of disc tears or disruptions, with further detail provided with a post-test CT scan.
- Spinal Probing - gentle probing of the foraminal structures is used to diagnose pain sources.
- Intradiscal Injection - intradiscal injection of steroids and anesthetic medications are injected in discs for diagnosis of discogenic back pain.
