Neurosurgery to Treat Chronic Pain

Chronic pain can inhibit your ability to work, move or even eat properly, which can erode your overall quality of life. Between 30 and 40 million people each year experience chronic pain that does not respond to pain relievers like aspirin and ibuprofen. Sometimes persistent pain is the result of trauma or injury. In other cases, an underlying cause or health condition is responsible for prolonged discomfort.

Common conditions that cause chronic pain include, but are not limited to: 

Whatever the cause, neurosurgeons are specially trained to treat chronic pain in patients who can’t find relief through nonoperative means. At Inspira, our neuro and pain management teams will work diligently to diagnose the cause of your pain and identify the proper course of treatment.

Depending on the type and severity of your pain, your neurosurgeon may perform one of the following procedures using an open or minimally invasive approach: 

Surgeries that reduce pain by sending electrical currents to your nerves may also be considered on a case-by-case basis. Deep brain stimulation, peripheral nerve stimulation, spinal cord stimulation and motor cortex stimulation are all examples of this type of therapy known as neuromodulation.
