High-tech, fully implantable pain control systems.
Targeted Drug Delivery
Precision pain pumps are implanted medical devices that deliver small doses of medication directly to the spinal cord. Applying medication directly to the spine provides powerful pain relief while keeping the medication out of the brain and the rest of the body, minimizing adverse effects and addiction potential.
Neurostimulation therapy uses an implantable system to deliver small electrical impulses directly to the spinal cord, the common pathway for pain signals. Patients can control the intensity of these impulses with a handheld device. Initially, a patient will test the therapy device for three to seven days. If the trial is successful, the neurostimulator is then implanted permanently (and may be removed at any time, if necessary).
