PLEASE NOTE: Gold Coast Spine does not perform these investigations, we are supplying information for your reference only.
In addition to having radiology tests performed, your surgeon may need you to have other investigations performed during your course of treatment. They may be as simple as a blood test prior to undergoing surgery or other tests such as an EMG, Medial Branch Block, or Facet Joint Injection. As with radiology, not every patient will be asked to undergo these other investigations. Your surgeon will decide which investigation will best help him in your care as his patient at various stages during your course of treatment.
The information provided about these investigations is general in nature and should you have any specific questions regarding the investigation you have been asked to undergo, you should ask your surgeon or the clinician performing the investigation.
