Caudal Epidural Steroid Injection
Caudal epidural steroid injections are a combination of a steroid and a local anesthetic that is delivered to your lower back to treat chronic back and lower extremity pain. The procedure involves injecting a steroid into the epidural space, where the irritated nerve roots are located.

Bone spurs and ligaments that are pressing on nerves may be removed at the same time. Here’s what to expect before, during, and after your laminectomy.
