Detailed Answer:
HI and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about your back pain. Hope this spin injection help relief your of the pains.

This, in strict terms is not considered a surgical procedure. However, for billing purposes, this may be classified as a minor surgical/intervention procedure for harmonized use.

Hope this addresses your query fully. I wish you well and glad to have had you use our services today. We wish you well and feel free to ask for any further clarifications if need be.
Thanks.
