Caudal epidural steroid injections

This injection is similar to the lumbar epidural steroid injections with the exception of needle entry site.  In the caudal epidural steroid injection the needle is placed through a small opening in the caudal canal at the base of the spinal canal just above the tailbone.  Local anesthetic is given into the skin and the tissues below the skin to reduce the pain of needle entering into the caudal canal.  Please refer to the section lumbar epidural steroid injections for full details regarding this injection, which is similar to the lumbar epidural steroid injections.

Dr. Daneshfar is an interventional pain management specialist and performs many of these procedures routinely and daily at the Acute and Chronic Pain and Spine Center (ACPSC) and the local hospitals.
