Narcotic Infusion Pump Implant in Santa Clarita
A narcotic infusion pump implant can be an excellent treatment option for patients who experience severe chronic pain. Dr. Grewal may recommend this method of treatment for patients who would benefit from pain relief through medication given directly into the spinal cord. Dr. Grewal will place a small pump under the skin of the abdomen to deliver medication through a catheter around the spinal cord.
Advantages of a Narcotic Infusion Pump Implant
An advantage of the narcotic infusion pump implant is that patients may control their chronic pain with a smaller dose compared to oral medication since the medication is delivered directly to the pain area. With a lower dose, patients can experience minimal side effects from the drug.
Pain Relief with a Narcotic Infusion Pump Implant
Dr. Grewal offers individual care for every patient. By adequately examining and listening to patients, he can determine if the narcotic infusion pump implant is best for them. A pump implant can help lessen chronic pain caused by:
- Failed back surgery syndrome
- Cancer pain
- Reflex sympathetic dystrophy
- Chronic pancreatitis
- Other disorders that cause chronic pain
At our practice, it is our goal to offer expert and compassionate care to patients. By evaluating a patient's pain symptoms, Dr. Grewal is not only able to treat patients' symptoms, but also help them better understand the source of the pain and in turn better understand how their body works and how a treatment is best for them.
