Physicians at Pain Care Bring Hope to Hundreds of Pain Management Patients Who Previously Had None Through Use of a New Procedure Called Spinal Cord Stimulation
Date:12/5/2012

Stockbridge, GA (PRWEB) December 05, 2012

Pain Care, LLC, an interventional spine and pain management practice in Atlanta, Georgia, offers new hope to thousands of patients suffering from chronic pain through a procedure called Spinal Cord Stimulation. This new treatment offers patients a new option to control their pain. Spinal Cord Stimulation is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure, which involves the insertion of a lead through a needle sized cannula into the epidural space of the spine. Once inserted, the lead is attached to a stimulator, which replaces the pain signals from an accident, trauma, or other injury with a euphoric sensation thereby increasing the quality of life of the chronic pain sufferer.    

In addition to its many physiological benefits, SCS provides valuable alternatives to traditional narcotic therapies. Dr. Vincent Galan, the medical director at Pain Care who has practiced in the Atlanta area for over 25 years, explains: “Long-term narcotic usage has been shown to produce harmful side-effects which can lessen a person’s quality-of-life. For that reason, we tend to steer patients toward interventional procedures like SCS for their pain relief. Additionally, SCS has been effective in many of my patients who have tried narcotic therapy without any success.” "This is truly a revolutionary procedure and it is virtually unknown to the general public" continues Dr. Galan.

Who is a candidate for a SCS? Anyone who suffers from neuropathic pain or pain stemming from damaged nerves. “Once a patient is approved for the procedure, we first perform a trial procedure or a test drive as many patients describe it”, explains Dr. Galan. “During this time the patient is implanted with trial leads which are attached to an external stimulator. The patient is then exposed to the stimulation for a period of 3-5 days. If the patient feels that it is helpful in controlling their pain, we then move forward with a permanent implantation.”

Founded in 2008, Pain Care’s mission is to provide our patients and communities with the highest quality spine care and pain management in a compassionate, caring environment. Our goal is to improve the quality-of-life of our patients through the use of cutting-edge technology and time tested interventional medical techniques. Pain Care is a privately held company and is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. Please visit Pain Care online at http://www.georgiapaincare.com!
