Untill recently patients with condition like Low Back Pain, sciatica/slip disc, Neck pain/ Cervical radiculopathy ,joints & nerve pain had to look for doctors, who could help them get rid of their pain, but unfortunately patient had to suffer due to conservative management with very low outcome & Higher failure rate of open surgery. Today With advancement in science, he offers many options & these conditions can easily be treated with minimally invasive spine & non spine procedures without any stitches or cutting of tissue by doing BAND-AID procedures. Advantage of minimally invasive procedures lie in its better results, higher accuracy, no tissue destruction or scaring, day care procedure & faster rehabilitation.

II. TREATMENT OPTIONS :
For too long, there has been a lack of understanding in regards to chronic pain & like Low Back Pain, sciatica/slip disc, Neck pain/ Cervical radiculopathy had to look for doctors who could help them get rid of their pain, but unfortunately patient had to suffer due to conservative management with very low outcome & Higher failure rate of open surgery.
A. Pain Mapping(diagnostics)
Interventional Spine and Pain continues to provide the most advanced diagnostic techniques and treatments of back pain through comprehensive physical examination along with spinal pain mapping procedures. When physical examination or imaging studies fail to determine the etiology of pain, our Physicians will provide spinal pain mapping techniques through selective nerve root blocks, medial branch nerve blocks of the facet joints, sacroiliac joint injection, peripheral nerve blocks, provocative discography and sympathetic blocks in the diagnosis of low back pain of undetermined etiology.
B. NON SURGICAL TREATMENT
Treating pain requires a commitment from the patient and clinician to frequently meet, evaluate, and reassess the treatment plan. Our practice is guided by state-of-the-art technology yet grounded in a philosophy of a hands-on approach customized to each patient's unique needs, we recognize that the needs of patients in pain are not alike, so we therefore create our treatment programs to be patient-driven. Our aim is to empower the patient with the tools to return to their highest level of function by bridging the gap between conservative treatment (low outcome) & open surgery(high complication )with day care non-surgical interventions.
1-Advanced Interventional Injections (Image guided) :Interventional injections was developed to treat disorders with no trauma to surrounding tissue and muscles. The result for the patient is quicker recovery, no incision or blood loss and faster pain relief, which leads to an overall better quality of life

C. MINIMALLY INVASIVE SPINE PROCEDURES
Why treat spine pain with excruciating old-fashioned open back & neck surgery? With minimally invasive spine procedure there is no hospital stays. Its done through 3-5 mm incision which requires only Band-Aid afterward, and a greatly reduced risk of infection and complications. Many of patients are back on their feet within hours and can return to work in couple of days. Pain mapping is so precise that one minimally invasive procedure can remove lifetime of agony.
Minimally invasive spine & pain procedures are:
