At UR Medicine's Orthopaedics & Physical Performance, your medical team will work through the pros and cons of each alternative treatment with you. We will always recommend the least invasive procedure that can give you the most positive long-term result: pain relief and a return to the activities you enjoy.

You may have the option of one or more of the non-surgical, minimally invasive procedures listed here:

  • Image-Guided Spine-Specific injections
