1Başkent Üniversitesi, Adana Dr. Turgut Noyan Uygulama ve Araştırma Hastanesi, Beyin ve Sinir Cerrahi Kliniği, Adana, Türkiye Spinal pain is the most common cause of presentation to the neurosurgery outpatient clinic. Although surgical interventions are required in some of the patients, most are treated with conservative treatments. Injections applied to the vertebrae and neuro-ablative methods have taken their place among conservative treatment methods. In the last 10 years, spinal injections have been applied to neurosurgery practice and frequently applied in our country and in the world. This has changed the perspective of neurosurgeons regarding pain of spinal origin and increased the satisfaction of the patients. Percutaneous minimally invasive procedures applied to the spine are of interest to both functional neurosurgery and minimally invasive spinal surgery. In this section, we will talk about injection and neuroablation procedures used in the treatment of spinal pain. Anahtar Kelimeler : Spinal pain interventions, Injections, Neuroablation
