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. 

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.
