How long will my procedure take?

Interventional procedures generally require one half hour to one hour. Additionally, patients are monitored for approximately one hour after the procedure in a separate recovery area.

 

Will I be awake during my procedure?

Yes, patients are awake during procedures, and monitored continuously as well. Mild sedation options may be available for certain procedures.

 

What should I expect after my intervention?

After the procedure, patients can resume taking their regularly scheduled medications. Mild pain and swelling may occur at the injection site(s), which may be lessened with a cool pack to the affected skin. Many patients experience instant pain relief with injections, but others may not feel benefit for up to a week after the procedure, particularly if corticosteroids were injected. Most patients return to work and other activities the day after the procedure.
