The following patients should not have this injection: if you are allergic to any of the medications to be injected, if you are on a blood-thinning medication (. Coumadin, injectable Heparin), or if you have an active infection going on. With blood thinners like Coumadin, your doctor may advise you to stop this for 4-7 days beforehand or take “bridge therapy” with Lovenox prior to the procedures. Anti-platelet drugs like Plavix may have to be stopped for 5-10 days prior to the procedure. Aspirin should be stopped for cervical procedures for 10 days prior, but not for Lumbar.

I am a patient of Dr. Jeffrey Oppenheimer, who is my spine doctor. I have gotten wonderful care from him and all the PAs and staff. At Hollywood and Palm Beach Gardens. They are extremely talented and I could not ask for a better knowledgable doctor in his field. He is kind, patient, and takes the time needed to answer your questions and concerns. He has helped me so much. I will have the lumbar operation with him as my doctor. Also, I was referred to Dr. Shapiro in that group who is a knee doctor. I have gotten an MRI now and he prescribed a physical Therapist that is really helping me. This is the third set, the other two were Prescribed by another doctor that I did not get the hands on treatment from. I can not say enough good things about this group of doctors, PAs and their group.
