Your Visit in EPC

During your initial consultation, an interventional pain management specialist will discuss together with you your health status according to the submitted documents and will proceed onto the next steps in your treatment:


  1. performance of a basic physical examination
  2. evaluation of the clinical findings
  3. propose the next steps and the best method of your treatment:
    • diagnostic procedure to determine the source/cause of your back pain
    • minimally invasive procedure with the goal to eliminate the cause of your back pain

      In outpatient care, it is also possible for the specialist to decide that no treatment is necessary.


Minimally invasive or endoscopic procedures performed by EuroPainClinics® in the regime of one day surgery. This means that the patient can return home after the surgery on the same day.

An interventional pain management specialist will inform you about the type of procedure you will undergo and how it will be performed. You will also be told about its effectiveness and potential risks

Postponing the surgery:

  • Due to the need to submit additional medical information about the patient’s health status.
  • In the case of a serious or complicated medical condition and a necessary detailed multi-disciplinary expert consultation (neurosurgeon, orthopaedic surgeon, neurologist, etc.) or/and a preparation of a more demanding surgery.
