Coastal Orthopedics’ patients now have access to lumbar epidural steroid injections through two specialty-trained doctors: Dr. Erkan Alci and Dr. Erin Watson. Dr. Alci of Coastal Orthopedics recently completed additional training in this noninvasive treatment.
Lumbar epidural steroid injections are used to treat spine pain and spine-related lower extremity pain. The steroid that is injected reduces inflammation around the nerve that is pinched or inflamed and causing pain. This helps to relieve or eliminate pain quickly and without surgery.
Dr. Alci and Dr. Watson perform lumbar epidural steroid injections at the office as an outpatient procedure.
