If you’re experiencing disabling lower back pain, groin pain, hip pain or leg pain, despite extensive treatment to diagnose and relieve the cause of your pain, then a Discogram may be needed to further evaluate your treatment options. The first step in alleviating debilitating pain is discovering precisely where the disc pain is originating from, and a Discogram does just that.
A Discogram is a procedure that can help diagnose which disc or discs are causing a patient’s pain. Generally, the most likely affected three (3) discs are inserted with needles under fluoroscopy and then injected with dye to see the morphology of the disc and to elicit pain if the disc is the cause of it. The procedure should not last more than an hour.
