There has recently been an outbreak of meningitis in
several states, not including Iowa, which has been linked to epidural steroid
injections performed with the medication methylprednisolone from one particular
compounding pharmacy, the New England Compounding Center (NECC).
Steindler Orthopedic Clinic does not get any steroids or
other medications from the New England Compounding Center (NECC).
At this time, there is no evidence to suggest that any of
our medications are contaminated, and patients should be aware that they are at
no additional risk for complication after any injection beyond the risks
commonly associated with each procedure.
Please refer to the CDC link below for further
