Precision Diagnosis

Precision Diagnosis

You may not need surgery

  • Insight Spine UK do not operate on MRI scans. After all, you cannot take
    pictures of pain.
  • Spinal pain is complex and each patient is different.
  • Solving your diagnostic puzzle may need additional steps.

Both Mr Hess and Dr Hammond are senior instructors with the Spine Intervention Society, a specialist organisation dedicate to setting technical standards and methods for precision diagnosis and best practice in spinal pain management.

If needed, a comprehensive range of diagnostic or treatment procedures may be used to identify the specific cause of your pain including:

  • Facet Medial Branch Block
  • Selective nerve root blocks
  • Sacroiliac Joint Blocks
  • Disc testing
  • and many more

Clear diagnosis leads to the best treatment
