Intrathecal Treatments

An intrathecal pain pump is a pain medication delivery system that sends treatment to the spinal cord. This device is surgically implanted under the skin in the abdomen, and delivers medication through a catheter that is send directly to the spinal cord. The intrathecal pain pump allows patients to be in control of their symptoms, while protecting them from addiction and other negative side effects. The pump is programmed by a pain management specialist to release medication over a certain period of time. The physician may change its programming if the needs of the patient change. Intrathecal pain pumps may be recommended for patients suffering from failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS), cancer pain, arachnoditis, chronic pancreatitis, and more.
