Minimally Invasive Treatments

Image guided injections are accurate and minimize the risks of complications. Tiny needles can be used under CT guidance. Relief of back pain and avoidance of, or delay in, surgery are the major benefits.

Spine Injections

Injections can offer a non-surgical option for back pain, before surgery is considered. Injections can be useful in providing pain relief and as a diagnostic tool to help identify the source of the pain.

OsteoCool Radiofrequency Ablation

Cape Cod Healthcare’s spine specialists – our expert neurosurgeons – use the latest in technology to offer relief to patients who have spine pain due to cancer metastases.

OsteoCool radiofrequency (RF) ablation is a procedure that uses alternating, low-power current, directed through a probe, to heat and destroy spinal tumors. During this minimally invasive procedure, this heated probe, in combination with a second probe directing water to the site, kills cancerous cells, while preserving healthy tissue.

Radiofrequency Neurotomy of the Lumbar Facets

During this minimally invasive procedure, the physician uses heat from radio waves to treat painful facet joints in your lower back. This procedure is also called radiofrequency rhizotomy. It can treat pain that doesn’t respond to medications or to physical therapy.

Radiofrequency Neurotomy of the Thoracic Facets

During this minimally invasive procedure, the physician uses heat from radio waves to treat painful facet joints in your upper back. This procedure is also called radiofrequency rhizotomy. It can treat pain that doesn’t respond to medications or to physical therapy.

Spinal Cord Stimulation

Spinal cord stimulation (also called SCS) uses electrical impulses to relieve chronic pain of the back, arms and legs. It is believed that electrical pulses prevent pain signals from being received by the brain. SCS candidates include people who suffer from neuropathic pain and for whom conservative treatments have failed.
