Racz workshop topics vary by region. The lab curriculum is designed around the primary topic of Epidural Lysis of Adhesion using specific instruments designed specially for the procedure(s). However, as an example, the S1 Lysis procedure is exclusively available only to the European Racz workshop because it is not government approved in other regions of the world where the Racz Lab is offered. Similarly, US coding practice and management is exclusively taught in the United States.
Epidural Lysis of Adhesions
Commonly known as the Racz Procedure™, Epidural Lysis of Adhesions is a procedure to reduce the compressive effects of scar tissue (adhesions) in the spinal canal. This technique is accomplished by the use of a catheter (tube) which physically breaks through scar tissue to deliver medications that help to soften scar tissue. It is done with the use of a fluoroscope to assist the physician in placement of the catheter.

For US locations, Racz Lab provides an in-house Reimbursement and Practice Management expert to teach proven and effective ways to get procedures covered. This discussion also addresses practice marketing, coding, appeals, and much more.
