Now it generally means fellowship trained, performing cervical and lumbar facets and epidurals, in addition to 'more advanced' procedures such as radiofrequency ablation, discography, +/- nucleoplasty or IDET, and depending on where you trained, vertebroplasty, spinal cord stimulator and pump insertions.
