Diagnostic Medial Branch Nerve Injections are nonsurgical diagnostic procedures performed by the region’s leading pain management experts at Nassau Anesthesia Associates, P.C., a medical group affiliated with Winthrop-University Hospital on Long Island, NY.
In addition to providing anesthesia care for patients before, during, and after surgery, Nassau Anesthesia Associates has anesthesiologists with advanced training in the field of pain management. We utilize the most advanced nonsurgical techniques for treating acute and chronic pain that hasn’t responded to more conservative treatments.
The medial branch nerve injection targets the facet joints, or zygapophysial joints which are part of the bony framework of the spine from the base of the skull down to the base of the spine. The small bony projections connect with other facets joints in the vertebrae above and below.
