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.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
