Summary

The provider injects a patient's own blood to seal a cerebrospinal fluid, or CSF, leak that a spinal needle often causes. This service treats a post spinal headache which may occur when an epidural, spinal needle, or lumbar puncture leaves a hole or tear in the dura, the lining around the spinal cord, causing spinal fluid to leak.
