DRG (Dorsal Root Ganglion) Spinal Stimulators

*DRG (dorsal root ganglion) spinal stimulators- DRG stimulators are a significant advancement in the past few years, though very few pain physicians offer this important, cutting edge treatment.

  • Chronic pelvic pain after gynecologic or urologic surgery
  • Chronic pain after crush injuries to the lower extremities, foot, or multiple foot surgeries
  • Chronic pain after replacement of the hip, knee, and ankle joints
  • Chronic abdominal pain after abdominal surgery including hernia surgery
  • Chronic pain after peripheral nerve injuries
  • Complex regional pain syndrome of the lower extremities (including patients who failed traditional spinal cord stimulation)
