Lumbar Punctures


 

PREPARING FOR YOUR PROCEDURE

Before your lumbar puncture, in order to screen you for safely undergoing this procedure, your doctor, nurse or other health care professional asks questions about your medical history, does a physical exam, and orders blood tests to check for bleeding or clotting disorders. Your doctor may also recommend a CT scan or MRI to determine if you have any abnormal swelling in or around your brain.

Once the doctor is satisfied that you need a csf analysis and are not at increased risk to undergo the spinal tap procedure, he will refer you to Dr. Frazier to perform the procedure and obtain the spinal fluid sample for lab analysis.
