THE NEXT STEP IN SPINAL CORD STIMULATION
In a traditional SCS method, doctors place leads in several different regions in the spinal cord. If conventional SCS methods are not effective, focusing on the dorsal root ganglion (DRG) may produce better and long-lasting results.
Our specialists are dedicated to thoroughly understanding your condition and the pain you endure before creating a customized treatment plan, which may include DRG Stimulation.
DRG STIMULATION VS. CONVENTIONAL SCS
About 90 million suffer from chronic back or neck pain daily. Many find substantial relief after spinal cord stimulation therapy. SCS is referred to as a “pacemaker for pain” that uses very mild electrical pulses to replace pain messages. Conventional SCS treatment is associated with some significant drawbacks, as many patients report unmet expectations, continued pain, unwanted paresthesia, and decreased relief over time.
The DRG is one of the largest nerve bundles in the entire back region. By focusing on this area, doctors can produce better results than conventional SCS therapy.
WHAT DOES DRG STIMULATION TREAT?
The focused precision of DRG stimulation allows our pain management specialists to better address a wide array of conditions that cause pain in different parts of the body, including:
DRG stimulation can also manage or eliminate pain due to lumbar radiculopathy, lumbar stenosis, and degenerative disc disease.
