Discography

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

Orthopedic Surgeon in AtlantaDiscography is a diagnostic procedure used to help identify the source of neck or back pain. It is a minimally invasive procedure that allows physicians to accurately determine the exact disc in the back that is causing pain and/or problems. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we are an orthopedic spine and sports medicine practice that specializes in using interventional spine treatments for chronic or acute pain conditions. We are proud to have double board certified Interventional Spine and Interventional Sports physicians that are committed to helping patients find pain relief so that they can return to an active lifestyle.

The discs in the spine act as cushions between each vertebra. During a discography, one of the highly trained and certified physicians at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians will inject a small amount of dye into the soft center of a disc. This procedure is guided by a Fluoroscopy machine; this machine also takes pictures to determine which disc(s) are causing the problem and producing pain in the spine. Using the advanced Discography procedure, our physicians are able to accurately diagnose the specific cause of back pain so that appropriate treatment can be recommended and started. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we are committed to using the most minimally invasive diagnostic and treatment methods available because we believe that the less we mess with the intricate spinal system, the less likely additional damage will occur.

If you have suffered from chronic or acute neck or back pain without finding relief, please contact the discography specialists at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians in Atlanta today to schedule a consultation. We look forward to helping you find relief from your back pain so that you can resume an active lifestyle and live your best life.
