The treatment programs offered at our Houston and Pasadena Texas Pain Clinics are designed to help patients avoid back or neck surgery, whenever possible, as well as avoid taking opioid (narcotic) medications. We frequently use minimally invasive techniques. These procedures are performed in a comfortable and warm outpatient setting and are almost painless. Most procedures are carried out under image guidance (fluoroscopy or CT scan) which increase their efficacy, accuracy and safety (as opposed to techniques that are performed blindly).
