Patient Success Story

An MRI of her back revealed that Armine Aharonian had spinal stenosis that was contributing to the intense sciatic pain she was experiencing in her legs. But having had two total knee replacements, she desperately wanted to avoid more surgery, particularly spinal surgery.

Using x-ray guidance, Dr. Singla delivered local anesthetic and corticosteroid anti-inflammatory medication into Aharonian’s epidural space to shrink the swelling around her nerve roots to relieve the pain she was experiencing. Aharonian received three epidural injections from Dr. Singla over the course of several months and the outcome has helped her regain her sunny outlook on life.

“I feel so much better!” she said. “I am very happy and so appreciative to Dr. Singla. He is very gentle and a very nice man.” – Armine (view full story)
