Minimally Invasive Pain Interventions

Total Care” is the principle followed by the internationally recognized pain specialists in dardsatya. They are experts in doing all kinds of minimally invasive interventions for patients need. Various research publications and randomized trials in the literature which emphasize the need for early interventions to improve quality of life of the patients. Pain reducing procedures such as Radiofrequency ablation (RFA), cervical, thoracic and lumbar facet joint injection , transforaminal epidural injection, cervical, thoracic and lumbar epidural injection, Gasserian Ganglion block, Splanchnic Nerve block, stellate ganglion block, lumbar sympathetic block, Vertebral Interventions for Compression Fractures like Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty (for multiple myeloma and osteoporotic fractures) can be done on a day care basis. Patient can go to their home on the same day.

Radiofrequency Ablation

RFA or Radiofrequency ablation, is a medical procedure in which pain generating source or nerve is ablated using the heat. The heat is generated from high frequency alternating current in the range of 350–500 kHz. RFA is generally conducted in the outpatient setting, using local anesthetics or in conscious sedation. Conventional procedures such as pulsed Radiofrequency and cooled radiofrequency are easily done for long term pain relief for non cancer and cancer patients.

Intrathecal Morphine Pump

Cancer patients usually suffer severe pain, which leads them to poor quality of life. Sometimes patients on high dose of oral morphine do not get sufficient pain relief. They may also suffer from side effects of opioids. An intrathecal pump is a medical device used to deliver medications directly into the space between the spinal cord and the protective sheath surrounding the spinal cord. Opioid dose requirement by this route is nearly 300 times lesser as compared to oral dose. For instance, 300 mg of oral morphine is equivalent to 1 mg of intrathecal morphine dose. Medications such as baclofen, and morphine may be delivered in this manner to minimize the side effects often associated with the higher doses used in oral or intravenous delivery of these drugs.

Spinal Cord Stimulator

A Spinal Cord Stimulator is using pulsed electrical signals in the spinal cord to control chronic pain. The lumbar spinal cord is the preferred target for the control of spinal spasticity or enhancement of standing and stepping capabilities. Spinal Cord stimulation (SCS) is consists of stimulating electrodes implanted in the epidural space and an electrical pulse generator which is implanted in the lower abdominal area, conducting wires connecting the
