About Lysis of Adhesions
As a minimally invasive treatment, lysis of epidural adhesions works by positioning a catheter in the epidural space to help break up adhesions and inject anesthetics or steroid medications. Epidural adhesions, also known as scar tissue, occur for several reasons, causing pain and discomfort in the legs and back. Our team of pain management experts at Tricity Pain Associates performs lysis of adhesions to decrease scar tissue and offers relief of symptoms in the affected area. If you believe that your back or leg pain may be the cause of scar tissue, this lysis of adhesions procedure may be right for you and your symptoms.

"TRICITY Pain Associates staff is amazing and not to mention Dr. K. Monis, he is an excellent Dr. I visit with him, he saw my problems and right away had the solutions.

Thank you Dr Monis!"- P.M. / Google / Jun 17, 2022
"Very friendly staff. Only complaint is the girl who took me to the back and put me in the room, must have called me sister 20 times. That’s worse than calling someone honey, sweetie, baby or the other names we are taught in nursing not to use. She was nice but calling someone sister that many times was ridiculous"- B.T. / Google / Jun 17, 2022
Lysis of Adhesions Treatment
Performed with a local anesthetic, the lysis of adhesions procedure begins with the insertion of a catheter into the epidural space. As well as being used to break up the adhesions, the catheter may also be used to inject solutions that may include a variety of substances (anesthetics, corticosteroids, hypertonic saline, or hyaluronidase). For a number of patients, a series of injections may be recommended over the course of several days while the catheter remains in its position. If this is not necessary, the catheter will be removed and you will be monitored before being sent home to recover.
