Minimally Invasive Procedures &
Specialised Injections

Modern medicine has led to the availability of many interventional options that do not require the need for open surgery. Our unique expertise in Minimally Invasive Procedures (MIPs) enables us to provide them as an alternative to conservative therapies and surgical options.

What are Minimally Invasive Procedures?

Minimally Invasive Procedures

It leverages on specialised injections and lasers to burn away pain or desensitise painful nerves so nerve function can regenerate and return to normal. Supplemented by exercise, physical therapy and medication, we’re able to help patients find long-term solutions to stay pain-free.

What are examples of minimally invasive procedures?

Specialised Injections
Specialised Injections help to treat a wide variety of common pain conditions. The injections comprise a mixture of local anaesthetic, anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxants to stop muscle spasm and inflammation.
Ketamine Therapy
Ketamine Therapy uses an IV drip to deliver Ketamine, which combats pain by acting against pain-modulating chemical receptors in our nervous system. Proceed
Neuroplasty
Neuroplasty removes pressure to nerves caused by excessive scar tissues. A tube is inserted to create more space in the narrowed spine, and free up trapped nerves by mechanically breaking down adhesions and administering medicine to decrease swelling. Proceed
Radiofrequency Ablation
Radiofrequency Ablation uses radio frequency energy to heat and burn painful nerves, relieving pain and addressing inflammation within facet joints. Proceed
Intrathecal Pump Implants
Intrathecal Pump Implants uses a small pump surgically placed under your abdomen and a catheter to deliver medication directly to your spinal cord. Proceed
Pulsed Radio Frequency
Pulsed Radiofrequency uses radio frequency energy to disable and desensitise pain-causing nerves, treating pain caused by hypersensitive nerves. Proceed
Spinal Cord Stimulator
Spinal Cord Stimulation uses an implantable stimulator to deliver electrical signals that inhibit pain signals before they reach the brain. Proceed
Endoscopic Laser Decompression
Endoscopic Laser Decompression treats back pain and nerve impingement associated with slipped discs and bone spurs. A rigid needle port of 1cm diameter is inserted into the spine. There is a camera at the tip of the needle similar to that of gastroscopy and colonoscopy. Under direct vision, bone spur and slipped discs can be lasered/ablated away. Proceed
Myofascial Block
Tense and painful muscle presents itself as muscle knots and spasms. Chronic muscle spasm has a lot of build up of toxin within the injured muscle. Injection of medication such as local anaesthetic, anti-inflammatory and/or botox will wash off the toxin and prevent muscle spasm.
Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy treats musculoskeletal conditions by stimulating healing at the injection site with temporary low-grade inflammation, which promotes tissue repair and growth. Proceed
Prolotherapy
Injection of natural non-chemicals injectate eg. Dextrose into areas of injury to promote healing and tissue regeneration. It is an alternative to Platelet Rich Plasma injection. Proceed
Peripheral Nerve Block
Nerve blocks are useful both diagnostically and therapeutically. Sometimes, if the pain generator is not obvious, we utilise a nerve block to assess if the pain condition is mechanically or functionally mediated. Therapeutically, it stops the pain signals in the painful nerves, giving relief and respite to the patient. It involves injection of a local anaesthetic and anti-inflammatory around a specific nerve or a bundle of nerves. The medication prevents the nerves’ impulses from reaching the central nervous system (CNS) and making you feel pain.
Intra-articular Injections
Joint degeneration will cause inflammation and pain within the affected joints. Intra-articular injection will remove swelling and effusion. Concurrently, anti-inflammatory and visco-supplement will improve the longevity of the affected joints.
Epidural Analgesia
Epidural Steroid is used to treat spine related pain conditions. The injection is similar to epidural analgesia given during labour of childbirth. Together with steroid and local anaesthesia, given at the correct location and level, it can give short term relief.
Nucleoplasty
Nucleoplasty uses controlled ablation to decompress the herniated disc in the spine to reduce pressure and compression on nerve roots. Proceed

How does our minimally invasive procedures and specialised injections compare with the used of Painkillers and Traditional Therapies for pain treatments?

Minimally invasive procedures and specialised injections offer more immediate pain relief than traditional therapies. Compared to painkillers, they directly address the source of pain and provide a long-term solution for patients to live pain-free without having to rely on medication.

What Are Specialised Injections?

Content 1

Specialised Injections help to treat a wide variety of common pain conditions like tension headaches, tennis/golfer elbow, planar fasciitis, joint pain as well as pain in the shoulder, knee, ankle, neck and back. The injections comprise a mixture of local anaesthetic, anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxants to stop muscle spasm and inflammation. They can be administered directly at the painful area, or at related points in order to reduce pain with low risk of complications or side effects.
