What Is Microsurgery?

Microsurgery is a general term referring to a surgery that requires an operating microscope or high-powered loupe magnification. Microsurgical techniques are commonly utilized by several medical specialties today, such as orthopedic surgery, ophthalmology, neurosurgery, oral surgery, podiatric surgery, plastic surgery, and pediatric surgery. Microvascular surgeries, surgeries on blood vessels and nerves, also commonly use microsurgical techniques.

What is Microsurgery Used For?

Here at Dallas Pain Relief Center, we utilize microsurgery within several of our treatment procedures. Through our microsurgical techniques, we used fluoroscopic technology to pinpoint the exact location of spinal pain and administer steroid treatment directly into the area of pain. This allows us to provide a more precise form of pain relief and management. Through our microsurgery procedures, patients can enjoy relief for several months or more. If the steroid is effective, patients may be eligible for repeat procedures.

If you are one of the 100 million Americans who suffer from chronic back pain, one of our spinal microsurgery procedures may be an effective treatment option for you. We offer several microsurgery procedures to treat and relieve your specific back pain.

For upper back pain diagnosis and treatment, we offer Stellate Ganglion Block, Medial Branch Nerve Block, and Radio Frequency Treatment.

For lower back (lumbar) pain, we offer Caudal Steroid Epidural Steroid Injection, Facet Joint Injection, Lumbar Sympathetic Block, Lumbar Transforaminal Injection, Medial Branch Nerve Block, Radio Frequency Treatment, and Sacroiliac Joint Injections.
