Rhizotomy

What is Rhizotomy?

Epidural steroid injections are a non-surgical treatment option for many forms of low back pain and leg pain. It involves the injection of a steroid medication into the epidural space of the spine. The goal of the injection is to reduce inflammation resulting in pain relief.
