Coronavirus (COVID-19) UPDATE
Saturday, March 28th
No routine in person visits are being accepted at this time. Office visits will be determined on a case by case basis by Drs. Segura and Robertson.
Our Doctors and Staff continue to follow CDC, State and local Coronavirus (COVID-19) guidelines. We are implementing modified patient check-in and check-out procedures to adhere to these recommendations for the safety of our patients and staff and to mitigate the risk in our community.
To further combat the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Louisiana, Gov. Edwards issued a Stay at Home Order on March 22, directing all Louisiana residents to shelter at home and limit movements outside of their homes beyond essential needs.
What This Means to You
Our office is staffed to manage the majority of our patients' needs by phone. No routine in person visits or inquiries are being accepted at this time. However, some patients, like our pain pump patients, will still be seen in person at our clinic. Office visits will be determined on a case by case basis by Drs. Segura and Robertson.
Once you have been approved for an office visit, we will have restricted seating in our waiting areas. To reduce social interaction, ONLY PATIENTS WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE FACILITY. Family members will be asked to wait in their vehicle.
We ask that any patient who feels ill or has been in contact with someone experiencing the symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19) to call the office prior to coming in for their appointment. We will continue to post updates on the measures we are taking to continue to treat our patients safely and effectively.

Diagnosing PainUnderstand the cause, treat the condition.
Getting to the Root of PainDiagnose the cause, treat the condition.
When the discs of the lower back become compressed from degenerative disc disease, it can lead to the development of bone spurs, giving nerves less room to pass between vertebrae.
Lumbar Degenerative Disc Disease
Disc degeneration often develops in areas of the spine that move. The lower back is especially prone to disc degeneration, as it can be subject to excessive stress and strain.
Lumbar radiculopathy is a term for damage, irritation, or compression of nerves in the lower back. The pain related to lumbar radiculopathy is the result of a pinched or irritated nerve.
When the discs that make up the neck back become compressed, bone spurs can develop. These spurs give the nerves less room to pass between the cervical vertebrae.
Cervical Degenerative Disc Disease
The cervical spine allows for a wide range of motion and is prone to disc degeneration. When degeneration occurs more rapidly than normal, the condition is called degenerative disc disease.
Cervial radiculopathy describes the damage, irritation, or compression of nerves in the neck. The pain related to cervical radiculopathy is the result of a pinched or irritated nerve.

Medial Branch Blocks
A medial branch block is an injection used to numb pain from the medial branch nerves. Medial branch blocks are often used to determine how well other, more permanent treatments may work.
Facet Radiofrequency Neurotomy
Facet radiofrequency neurotomy is used to reduce or eliminate pain in damaged facet joints. Radio frequency energy is used to disrupt pain signals from the damaged nerve.
Transforaminal Steroid Injections
Transforaminal epidural steroid injections are injections into the epidural area of the spine. They can be used to treat pain and swelling from radiculitis, bulging discs, and spinal stenosis.
Facet Joint Injections
Facet joint injections are minimally invasive, yet highly effective in alleviating spinal pain. An X-Ray guided fluoroscopy is used to locate and treat the inflamed joint.
Epidural Steroid Injections
Epidural steroid injections can be used to treat pain in the neck, back, shoulders, and arms. Using a fluoroscope, precise injections are delivered into the epidural area of the spine.
Migraine headaches cause the muscles in the head and neck to contract. Botox is injected into the affected area keeping the muscles associated with migraines from contracting.
