Transforaminal selective root sleeve injection used by breakthrough surgeon, DR Yosuf Mosuro to alleviate back pain.
Transforaminal selective root sleeve injection, a procedure that has the power to eliminate chronic pain of the spine resulting from disc herniation, pinched nerves, and sciatica, is expertly performed by Bellaire, Texas very own pain management doctor, DR Yosuf Mosuro.
DR Yosuf Mosuro suggests Transforaminal selective root sleeve injection, one of the most commonly performed popular procedures of DR Yosuf Mosuro, is a great course of action that is helping people from all walks of life reduce chronic back pain.
A transforaminal selective root sleeve injection targets the nerve pathways as they enter the spine. The small opening where this occurs is called the foramen. Past the foramen, there is a “sleeve” of an epidural sheath that extends on to the nerve root that is an extremely small, yet very important site for alleviating chronic pain. It is at this spot that DR Yosuf Mosuro injects very specific and targeted amounts of the anti-inflammatory agent, dexamethasone, along with a small amount of local anesthetic.
Traditional procedures like the epidural injection involve the injection of large amounts of steroid into the spinal space via a large-bore, eight-inch needle. Such a procedure gives very little control as to where the medication reaches and relies more on the luck that some of the medication will be effective than the skill of targeting the nerve sleeve directly. Unlike the procedure of DR Yosuf Mosuro, the epidural injection does not directly trigger the healing process. Epidural injections are also linked to intractable spinal headaches, weight gain, and suppression of adrenal gland function.
DR Yosuf Mosuro however, using a transforaminal selective root sleeve injection, injects a minor quantity of medication targeted at the specific area of the inflamed nerve root with a success rate of between 90 and 95 percent. Substantial, long-lasting relief most frequently follows DR Yosuf Mosuro transforaminal selective root sleeve injection, allowing patients to return to their regular lives the very next day (compared to very prolonged disability associated with the invasive surgeries performed by other surgeons). The transforaminal selective root sleeve injection, when provided by DR Yosuf Mosuro, is a simple out-patient procedure that caters to the comfort of the patient is an overall non-traumatic medical experience.
Beyond his exceptional prowess in performing the transforaminal selective root sleeve injection, DR Yosuf Mosuro is an extraordinarily accomplished and respected figure in the medical world.
