Spinal Cord Stimulation
A Spinal Cord Stimulator (SCS) is a type of implantable neuromodulation device that is used to send electrical signals to select areas of the spinal cord (dorsal columns) for the treatment of certain pain conditions. Dr. Skaribas and his team are experts in BurstDR and HF10 SCS procedures.
(DRG) Spinal Stimulation
DRG therapy offers a new option for complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). Recently approved by the FDA, DRG treats adults with moderate to severe difficult-to-treat chronic pain caused by CRPS of the lower limbs.
With a safe approach and fast recovery time, LinQ™ SI Joint Stabilization is the single solution for SI joint dysfunction. The LinQ™ Sacroiliac Joint Fusion system allows for fusion and stabilization of the SI joint in eligible patients where appropriate non-surgical treatment has failed.
Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injections
Lumbar Epidural Steroid Injections (Interlaminar): Injection of a corticosteroid into the lumbar epidural space under fluoroscopic guidance to provide anti-inflammatory therapy to irritated lumbar spinal nerves.
Cervical Steroid Injections
Cervical Epidural Steroid Injections involve a Fluoroscopically guided Injection of cortisone into the cervical epidural space to provide an anti-inflamatory therapeutic effect to irritated spinal nerves of the cervical spine.
Facet Joint Injections
A facet joint injection is a 10-20 minute outpatient procedure that can effectively relieve lower back pain in the sacroiliac and gluteal regions of the spine with the application of steroids and local anesthetics.
The Migraine Procedure
The Migraine Procedure (Trial/Implantation) utilizes Bilateral Supraorbital and Occipital Neurostimulation for treatment of intractable Migraine headaches as well as all severe Primary Holo-cephalic Headaches.
Vertiflex for Spinal Stenosis
Dr. Skaribas is among the first physicians in the U.S. to offer the Vertiflex treatment. He trains other physicians on the procedure and has performed this minimally invasive surgery more than any other Houston doctor.
Often a group of nerves that cause pain to a specific body region can be blocked with the injection of medication. These injections of local anesthetic and anti-inflammatory steroids directly to the area of the affected nerve cluster can significantly help with pain control.
HF10 Spinal Cord Stimulation
HF10 is a high frequency Spinal Cord Stimulation treatment which provides significant relief for chronic back and leg pain. It is a small medical device implanted during a minimally invasive procedure. The device sends mild electrical pulses to the spinal cord, reducing pain by altering abnormal pain signals traveling to the brain.
Behavioral Health Assessments & Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a widely researched, time-limited psychotherapeutic approach that has been shown to be effective across a number of mental and behavioral conditions. Evidence suggests that CBT-CP improves functioning and quality of life for a variety of chronic pain conditions.
