They work closely with your primary care physician to relieve your pain, control your medication, and get you back to living life. They don’t just treat your symptoms – they get to the source of your pain. Then they use the most advanced and minimally invasive interventions to achieve the best outcomes. 

The center’s staff includes well-trained surgical RNs with over 100 years’ combined experience. They have all been with the center since it opened in 2006. They know Drs. Ledbetter, Forte, and Gordon’s patients well. They assist the physicians with such procedures as:

  • EpiduralsInjections into the epidural space for back pain relief
  • Facet Joint Injections: Corticosteroids and anesthetics are placed between the vertebrae directly in the facet joint area for precise diagnosis and arthritic joint pain relief
  • Sacroiliac Joint Injections: Anti-inflammatory steroid medication and local anesthetic provide relief from pain caused by arthritis, injury, or strain of the sacroiliac joint
  • Radiofrequency Lesioning: Nerves from painful joints are precisely and safely lesioned to decrease or eliminate pain
  • DiscographyDiagnostic injection of radiopaque dye into spinal discs to identify the painful disc prior to neuro-surgical procedures
  • Selective Nerve Root Block: Diagnostic injection of anesthetic onto specific nerves to help identify the source of spinal pain
  • Vertebroplasty: This procedure stabilizes spinal vertebrae, which can dramatically and permanently reverse a patient’s pain
  • Kyphoplasty: The procedure of choice for severely compressed vertebrae, it uses a small balloon inflated inside the vertebra and a special stabilizing cement
