Spinal procedures have been performed in the outpatient setting for quite some time. Typically, these were pain management techniques, such as epidural steroid injections, facet injections, rhizotomies, and dorsal column stimulators. With more advanced techniques, and availability of Exparel® (long-acting local anesthesia), Dr. Hyde now performs many procedures that have been typically delegated to hospital type settings. Procedures that can now be performed outpatient include that of laminectomy with disc excision, posterior interbody fusions, anterior interbody fusions, cervical artificial disc placement, and anterior cervical discectomies with fusion. Some of these newer techniques, such as Intracept®, can relieve back pain while avoiding spinal fusion.
