Racz Procedures / Adhesiolysis
Percutaneous epidural adhesiolysis, also known as the Racz procedure, is used to treat epidural fibrosis. Patients that haven’t received relief from traditional methods of just physical therapy, medication or epidural steroid injections could benefit from the Racz procedure.
Adhesiolysis is usually an outpatient procedure that helps reduce pain symptoms in the spine. A local anesthetic and medications are used to numb the area, and a special wound catheter is inserted into the spine to open up areas around the problematic nerve site. Physical therapy is important to continue after this procedure that will help stretch the nerve root preventing scarring and pain.
