Low back pain generally involves lumbosacral radicular syndrome, nerve root pain, and nerve root entrapment/irritation. Management options for patients are variable and diverging. To the highlight the efficacy of combined early decompressive surgery plus intraoperative steroid injections in terms of postoperative back pain in patients managed by our combined team. A prospective study conducted by reviewing all consecutive patients managed, over a 1-year period (2018-2019). This study showed that adjunct use of intraoperative foraminal and epidural steroids injections to treat back pain in patients with degenerative spine disease could significantly improve the pain score which leads to significant decrease in working days off and the need for pain killer medications or even obviating the usage rate.
