Dr. Stilwell has a dedicated lead-lined procedure room equipped with fluoroscopy to perform epidural steroid injections.
Fluoroscopy is a technique for obtaining "live" X-ray images of a patient. Dr. Stilwell will use a switch to control an X-Ray beam that is transmitted through the patient. The X-rays then strike a fluorescent plate that is coupled to an "image intensifier" that is coupled to a television camera. Dr. Stilwell can then watch the images "live" on a TV monitor to guide the needle into the epidural space.
Dr. Stilwell has several examination and treatment rooms to assess, diagnose and treat your pain. Sciatica, lower back pain, neck pain and pinched nerves – these are conditions that affects millions of people every year.
Finally, Dr. Stilwell has created a warm and comfortable environment to wait for your appointment with reproductions of some famous artwork such as Monet's "Lily Pond", a color television set and pleasing colors. More importantly, you will find her office staff professional and curteous.
