DRG STIMULATION – Neuromodulation of the Dorsal Root Ganglion
Non-opioid therapy to manage chronic intractable pain & the only device FDA-approved for DRG Stimulation in the United States
Neuromodulation is the process by which nervous activity is regulated by way of controlling the physiological levels of several classes of neurotransmitters.
Technological advances have recently led to the development of a spinal cord stimulation system—that can specifically target the dorsal root ganglion (DRG) of the spinal level associated with the painful anatomic area—enabling treatment of chronic neuropathic pain.
PAIN MEETS ITS MATCH
Do you have Type I or II Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)? Suffering from severe pain in your lower limbs that has not been alleviated by any other treatments? Did you try traditional Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) with no luck?
Nona Medical has the answer you’re looking for!
Nona Medical Arts Pain Management is partnered with Abbott, offering a revolutionary new procedure that is changing the way we approach treating CRPS and other chronic pain conditions. It’s called DRG Stimulation. DRG has already proven itself in DRG clinical trials, offering superior pain relief over traditional SCS. DRG has proven to provide lasting pain relief.
The “DRG” in DRG Stimulation refers to the Dorsal Root Ganglion, also sometimes known as the posterior root ganglion. The Dorsal Root Ganglion lies at the posterior root of each spinal nerve. Pain signals travel from the lower limbs to the brain, on the way they must pass through the dorsal root ganglion.
The idea of DRG stimulation is nearly identical to traditional Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS), with one very important difference – rather than placing the leads in a general region of the spinal cord, DRG stimulation targets the specific regions of the cord that are transmitting the pain and shuts down those painful signals directly by placing the leads DIRECTLY OVER THE DRG’s.
The FDA clinical trial (ACCURATE Study) showed that electrically stimulating the ganglion offers patients better and more targeted pain relief from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS).
