Spinal Pain Management

Get relief from your back pain with LESIs (lumbar epidural steroid injections). LESIs are administered by Robert Augat, CRNA. Robert attended the Keck School of Medicine of USC and graduated in 2014 as a Board Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist. Robert was the Chief CRNA at East Los Angeles Doctors Hospital prior to joining MCH’s surgical team in June.

LESIs are a great option for people with:

  • Herniated Discs

  • Degenerative disc disease

  • Spinal Stenosis

Some patients will experience immediate relief. Usually, it takes three to seven days for the steroid medication to take effect. Often a series of three injections is prescribed to achieve a good level of pain relief.

Here is what a patient had to say about his experience. “I immediately felt complete relief from the pain. In fact, I have had no pain in my back since the procedure and cannot believe the results were this positive. Last night was the first night I actually slept through without waking with pain.”
