Laser Spine Institute’s Relief Confirmation Test can help you make a decision about care
If you have exhausted conservative treatments for your neck or back pain, you may have reached out to Laser Spine Institute to explore becoming a candidate for minimally invasive spine surgery. Even with the advantages of our outpatient procedures, we still understand that the decision to undergo any type of surgery requires careful consideration. This is why we are offering our Relief Confirmation Test — a diagnostic procedure designed to provide temporary relief and identify the cause of your painful symptoms.
What to expect from your Relief Confirmation Test
Offered at our state-of-the-art center in Tampa, Florida, the Relief Confirmation Test is designed for potential candidates who are considering surgery. This test is a selective nerve root block, or SNRB, which involves injection of an anesthetic into the specific nerve root believed to be the source of symptoms. This accomplishes the following:
- Patients can have a better understanding of the relief that can be experienced from surgery
- Helps to confirm diagnosis that a particular level of the spine is the source of pain and other symptoms
While the outcome of any surgical procedure can never be guaranteed, the Relief Confirmation Test can help you experience the potential benefits we can offer. To be considered for this procedure you must first receive a consultation and evaluation from one of our physicians to determine if this test is right for you.
