On-Site Fluoroscopy Suite
Fluoroscopy Procedures for Back Pain, Spinal Stenosis, Sciatica, and More!
Three Rivers Spine & Pain Medicine in Weirton, West Virginia is pleased to offer our patients an on-site fluoroscopy suite, making it even more convenient and easier for your pain to be diagnosed and treated all in one place, without the hassle of visiting a separate hospital or surgery center.
Fluoroscopy is a special imaging technique that displays real-time, moving X-ray images of a patient’s musculoskeletal system. These images are transmitted to a monitor, much like a TV, where the motion of body parts can be seen in great detail. This allows Dr. Le to more accurately pinpoint the appropriate location for medication injections, resulting in more effective pain-relieving results and fewer complications.
Dr. Le uses fluoroscopic-guided spinal injections to treat numerous conditions including low back pain, spinal stenosis, and sciatica. Some of the specific procedures that are aided by fluoroscopy include:
- Epidural steroid injections
- Sacroiliac injections
- Selective nerve root blocks
- Diagnostic facet joint injections
- Radiofrequency ablation
- Placement of spinal cord stimulator
Our on-site fluoroscopy suite often means that our patients can receive pain-relieving injections or other treatments at the same time as their initial doctor’s appointment, with no wait. Having these fluoroscopy-guided procedures done right in our Weirton pain management office also allows for a more relaxing environment over having to visit a completely different facility for diagnosis and treatment.
