Lumbar Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection

This procedure involves the injection of a steroid-anesthetic medication that can reduce swelling and inflammation of irritated spinal nerves. This minimally-invasive outpatient procedure is performed to relieve pain that radiates from the low back to the legs. The injection takes only a few minutes to complete. Some patients may only need one injection; other patients may require a series of injections to benefit.
