About Lysis of Adhesions

With any surgery, there are risk factors, such as the development of scar tissue. Lysis of adhesions is a procedure that cuts through bands of scar tissue, which are also known as adhesions. Tricity Pain Associates has helped countless men and women who are suffering from pain that is caused by scar tissue, especially those with epidural adhesions. These particular bands form in the epidural space of the spine, which can result in severe back and leg pain. Lysis of adhesions is a minimally invasive procedure that is generally reserved for patients who are experiencing long-lasting discomfort that could not be relieved with more conservative methods. Reach out to one of our Greater Dallas, TX locations in Carrollton, Prosper, or McKinney to learn more. We look forward to providing the relief you need so you can get back to doing the things you love.

Lysis of Adhesions Treatment

Most patients who undergo this procedure have had previous back surgery or suffered from a slipped disc that resulted in the development of scar tissue. Prior to any treatment, we will conduct a thorough consultation that may involve an MRI or x-rays to confirm that excessive scar tissue is the cause of your pain. To start the procedure, a local anesthetic will be used to numb the target area in addition to a sedative to keep you as comfortable as possible. A live x-ray machine will then be used to guide the placement of a catheter. Once the catheter is inserted, it is used to break up the scar tissue, which is followed by an injection of anti-inflammatory medication and saline. A secondary x-ray may be taken after your procedure to confirm the removal of the adhesions.
