Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection (TFESI)

A transforaminal epidural steroid injection (TFESI) is an injection of corticosteroids into the space just outside the covering (the dura) of the spinal cord in your lower back.

Because the injection is outside (epi) the dura, it is called an epidural injection. It targets the area where a nerve affected by compression exits the spine. Patients with herniated discs, radiculopathy, or radiculitis may benefit from this procedure. The goal is to reduce pain and improve mobility.
