Please read below to review what procedures we offer and how they are done. We do not use sedation for any office based procedure as it adds risk without benefit.  Procedures performed with local anesthetic are well tolerated, much safer, and less costly.

At this time there is great controversy regarding a need to stop blood thinners prior to certain procedures. Competing guidelines are different on what procedures and what medications need to be stopped. We no longer require patients to stop blood thinners unless we are doing spinal stimulators, kyphoplasty, discography, or sympathetic blocks. Additionally, we are able to perform epidural injections, RF (nerve burning procedure) and all other injections using small needles while patients are on blood thinners.
