Experts throw light on ‘lumbar nerve root blocks’

A live symposium on ‘Techniques of lumbar nerve root blocks’ in patients suffering from low back pain was organised by the Spine Society of Andhra Pradesh (SSAP) here on Sunday.

No hospitalisation

The technique helps most patients to get relief from nerve root blocks with injections, thereby eliminating the need for surgery in many cases. The patients do not need hospitalisation and can be discharged on the same day.

The faculty headed by Dr. J. Naresh Babu of Mallika Spine Centre, Guntur, and other faculty are Dr. Thomos Kishen, Dr. Ramakanth, Dr. Arunakumar, Dr. Sreekanth Reddy, Dr. Himanshu Prasad and Dr. Leela Prasad from the city. Around 80 delegates from A.P., Telangana and neighbouring States participated.

Andhra Medical College principal T. Padmavathi released a newsletter brought out by the SSAP on the occasion. SSAP president Uday Kumar presided over the programme.
