About Lysis of Adhesions
Lysis of adhesions is a surgical procedure that breaks up scar tissue. Also known as adhesions, bands of scar tissue can develop almost anywhere on the body that did not heal properly after a previous surgical procedure or injury. At Tricity Pain Associates in New Braunfels and Seguin, TX, we most commonly treat men and women who have developed an abnormal amount of scar tissue in their spine (epidural adhesions). When there is too much scar tissue in any one area, it can cause significant pain and hinder spine function. If you have tried other methods without success, it may be time to sit down with a seasoned medical professional to see if a surgical procedure is a next step.

"I cannot begin to explain how much Dr. V as helped me over the last year. I came to him at the recommendation of my rheumatologist due to an undiagnosed pain in my lower back. The pain was so intense I was unable to find any comfortable position much less sleep. From my first visit, I realized Dr. V was different. He spent time with me, listened to me, and was genuinely concerned about the ulceration (later diagnosed as lupus panniculitis) on my lower back and the immense pain it was causing. He was able to provide me with immediate relief. After my surgery, his office worked to get me in as soon as possible to adjust my medication. When Dr. V saw me hunched over, barely able to move, and walking with a walker, he told me he would take care of me, and he did. He adjusted my medication, and I was able to return to work when the surgeon released me. Besides his medical knowledge, Dr. V always made me feel that he cared about me as a person not just a patient. I would recommend Dr. V to anyone who is living with pain and wants their life back."- M.H. / Google / Dec 26, 2020

Lysis of Adhesions Treatment
Once a series of diagnostic tests are completed, your lysis of adhesions procedure will be scheduled. On the day of your surgery, we will have you lie down comfortably in one of our private treatment rooms and prep the area with a local anesthetic. In addition, a mild sedative is also used to help keep you calm and relaxed during surgery. From there, a live x-ray machine will guide the placement of a sterilized catheter. Anti-inflammatory medication and other drugs will be administered into the epidural space of the spine to help break up scar tissue. A follow-up appointment will be scheduled so we can take x-rays to confirm all of the adhesions have been removed successfully.
