Intrathecal Therapy via Pain Pumps: Advanced Relief for Chronic Pain

Imagine being able to focus on the activities you love without the constant distraction of pain.

Targeted Pain Relief

Intrathecal Therapy utilizes a small implantable device, known as a pain pump, to deliver pain medication directly to the area around the spinal cord. By bypassing the digestive system, this technique enables accurate targeting of pain receptors in the spinal fluid. With precise control over medication delivery, Intrathecal Therapy provides effective pain relief where you need it most.

Reduced Dependence on Oral Medication

Intrathecal Therapy offers a significant advantage over traditional oral pain medications. By delivering medication directly to the site of pain, smaller doses of medication can be used, resulting in reduced side effects and a lower risk of systemic complications. This approach also bypasses the digestive system, minimizing the potential for drug interactions and adverse effects on other organs.

Our specialists will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to determine if Intrathecal Therapy is an appropriate treatment option for you. We'll review your medical history, perform necessary diagnostic tests, and discuss your pain management goals. This evaluation will help us create a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific needs.


The next step involves a surgical procedure to implant a pain pump device. Our skilled surgeons will place the device under the skin, typically in the abdomen area, and connect it to a catheter that delivers medication to the spinal fluid. This minimally invasive procedure is performed under anesthesia, and you will be closely monitored by our team throughout the process.

Medication Trial
and Fine Tuning

Following the surgical implantation, a trial period will begin to determine the effectiveness of the pain pump therapy. During this time, different medications and dosages will be tested to find the optimal pain relief for you. Our specialists will closely monitor your response to medication and make necessary adjustments to ensure maximum effectiveness.

Ongoing Support

After the trial phase, if Intrathecal Therapy proves successful, our team will provide ongoing care and support. Regular follow-up appointments and check-ins will be scheduled to assess your progress, address any concerns or side effects, and fine-tune your pain management plan as needed. Our compassionate team is dedicated to your well-being and will be with you every step of the way.

Will I still need to take oral pain medication?

Intrathecal Therapy is designed to reduce dependence on oral pain medications. However, in some cases, a combination of therapies may be necessary for optimal pain management. Our specialists will work with you to tailor a treatment plan that minimizes your reliance on oral medications while providing effective pain relief.

Can the pain pump be adjusted or turned off?

Yes, the pain pump used in Intrathecal Therapy is programmable and adjustable. Our team can adjust the dosage and delivery rate of medication based on your individual needs and pain level.
