In brief: Many Physicians
Most properly trained physicians perform these under Flouroscopic X-ray equipment to guide them correctly and safely to the epidural space.
These physicians can be physiatrists, anesthesiologists and/or neurologists. Recommend finding a physician that has additional fellowship training at an accredited program for the best trained specialists.
