Patients will change into a hospital gown to allow easy access for the physician to clean, numb and inject the area. The procedure takes about 15-30 minutes. The patient will lie flat on an X-ray table with a pillow under their stomach to create a small curve in the back. Using an X-ray for guidance, the physician will insert a needle in the skin toward the epidural space. The correct placement is confirmed and then the steroid solution is injected slowly. Patients will sense some pressure, and are monitored for about 20 minutes before being discharged. Sedatives are available to relieve anxiety.
