For an unfortunate few, chronic pain leads to significant disability. This may include failed back surgery, CRPS, RSD, pancreatitis, cancer, and more conditions. Studies looking at intrathecal pain pumps have shown that it can be an exceptionally successful procedure where other options do not exist.
An initial trial is performed to see how much relief will be achieved, and if successful a psychological evaluation is necessary prior to insurance approval. The pain pumps need to be refilled every six to eight weeks, so it is crucial to have a qualified pain doctor for ongoing treatment.
Another procedure the Board Certified San Antonio pain management doctors at the practice offers is spinal cord stimulator implants. This procedure has a lot of the same indications,and involves a permanent placement of the implant with electrical impulses being emitted around the spinal cord.
The Board Certified pain doctors at the practice are compassionate, highly skilled and dedicated to helping patients obtain relief. For those patients with intractable pain such as individuals with cancer, living each day with a satisfactory level of pain may help considerably.
