Chronic Pain and Neuromodulation

More than 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain, a debilitating pain condition that persists over a long period of time. Patients who have not found relief with conventional pain management techniques may be candidates for neuromodulation, a treatment method offered at Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center (P/SL). We take a compassionate and patient-centered approach to pain management treatment, working closely with each patient to address the root cause of symptoms, relieve chronic pain and improve quality of life.

Neuromodulation at a Glance

Neuromodulation is a treatment option for chronic pain that is quickly becoming the standard of practice for pain management. Neuromodulation involves surgically placed electrodes that correct or block abnormal electric signals at the root of chronic pain and many other conditions. This safe, effective and cost-effective treatment method offers an alternative to the long-term use of opioids or other medications.

Conditions we treat with neuromodulation include, but are not limited to:

  • Chronic back pain
  • Chronic neck pain
  • Severe headaches
  • Intractable facial pain
  • Foot pain
  • Phantom pain or stump pain
  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome ( CRPS) previously known as Reflex sympathetic dystrophy
  • Pelvic pain
  • Abdominal pain
  • Pain related to peripheral vascular disease
  • Pain following spine procedures
