Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is pleased to provide expert discogram procedures to the residents of Atlanta and the Southeast. A discogram is a diagnostic procedure that can be used to determine whether or not one or more discs in the spine are the cause of back pain. During this procedure, one of our Interventional Spine physicians will inject small amounts of a sterilized material into the center of the disc to pressurize the disc. This injection is guided by a Fluoroscopy machine. Once the disc has been pressurized, pictures are taken with the Fluoroscopy unit and the needles are removed. In most cases, a post-discogram CT is obtained to document the internal architecture of the disc.
The physicians from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are highly experienced in performing a discography. Using this advanced procedure, we are able to accurately diagnose the cause of back pain so we can recommend an appropriate treatment plan.
