What is a Medial Branch Block?

What is a medial branch block? A medial branch block is an interventional treatment that can be used to determine whether or not a specific facet joint is the source of spine pain. The procedure involves injecting an anesthetic near small medial nerves connected to a specific facet joint, using Fluoroscopy to guide the injection. If the patient experiences significant pain relief immediately after the injection, then the facet joint is determined to be the source of the patient’s pain. At this point, a subsequent procedure called a medial branch radiofrequency ablation may be considered for longer-term pain relief.

The physicians at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are experts when it comes to administering medial branch blocks. Using this advanced diagnostic procedure, we can accurately pinpoint the source of pain and inflammation so we can recommend an appropriate long-term treatment plan. Our medial branch blocks are performed as an outpatient procedure in the comfort of our fully equipped outpatient surgery center. Before undergoing a medial branch block, one of our Interventional Spine physicians will take the time to carefully explain the procedure so you will know what to expert both before and after the procedure.

If you would like to get more information or to find out if you are a candidate for this procedure, please contact our Atlanta Medial Branch Block Specialists at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today and schedule a consultation with one of our Interventional Spine physicians. For your convenience, our office accepts most health insurance plans as well as several other forms of payment. We look forward to helping you stay active and live your best life.
