What are Epidural Steroid Injections?
Have you experienced a traumatic injury, developed a narrowing of the spine (spinal stenosis), or a bulging disc in your spine? The chronic pain associated with these conditions can be severe, which is why our pain management specialists offer epidural steroid injections (ESI) to aid in pain reduction on multiple levels. ESIs are anti-inflammatory steroid injections with a numbing component to mitigate the pain. These injections are excellent options for patients who do not wish to have a surgical procedure or are not in the position to have surgery at this time. Our compassionate and talented team of board-certified and fellowship-trained pain management specialists at Preston Surgery Center are exceptionally trained in pain management care. Dr. Mohammad Tariq, Dr. David Keelen, and Dr. Gabor Racz have treated thousands of men and women throughout their careers.
To deliver the steroid, a thin needle will be inserted with the guidance of fluoroscopy (x-ray) and contrast dye to make sure the medications reach the needed area. This is an outpatient procedure that can be performed on-site at Preston Surgery Center. The relief from the steroids will begin to work within a few days after injection. The pain relief from an ESI may last for a few months. We can discuss the risks and benefits of ESIs with you at your first appointment. If you would like to be considered for our steroid injection techniques to reduce your chronic pain, call our office in Frisco, TX.

When more invasive procedures are not available to you at this time, you may want to seek pain relief at Preston Surgery Center in Frisco, TX. While we offer ESIs for patients who qualify, we also have other approaches that our expert-level pain management specialists can recommend and/or perform. If deemed medically necessary and your insurance provider covers steroid injections in the epidural area, you may have an insurance plan that covers these injections. If your insurance will not cover the cost of ESIs or you need to pay out-of-pocket, we have payment options for you at Preston Surgery Center. Dr. Tariq, Dr. Keelen, and Dr. Racz will do their best to provide you with the care and pain relief you need to improve your quality of life. Schedule a consultation today.
