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.
HF10 Spinal Cord Stimulation
HF10 is a high frequency Spinal Cord Stimulation treatment which provides significant relief for chronic back and leg pain as well as Painful Diabetic Neuropathy. 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.
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
These are 10-20 min outpatient procedures that can effectively relieve Back and Neck pain utilizing radiofrequency denervation.
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.
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.
(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.
Kyphoplasty is used to treat painful compression fractures in the spine. In a compression fracture, all or part of a spine bone collapses.
