Surgical Implantation of Intrathecal Pain Pumps

What is it?

An intrathecal pain pump is a method of delivering pain medication directly to a patient’s spinal cord. The system uses a small pump that is surgically placed under the skin of the abdomen and delivers medication through a catheter into the area around the spinal cord.

What are the benefits?
Chronic pain patients may experience a reduction in pain as well as an overall improvement in activities of daily living, and patients with spasticity may see a reduction in rigidity and muscle spasms. Oral medications and their side effects are greatly reduced because the medication in the pump is delivered directly to the spinal cord–so much smaller doses are needed.
