Working directly on the spinal cord, the highway for pain signals, intrathecal pump therapy interferes with pain signals before they reach the brain. An Intrathecal Pump is a device that implanted into the body in order to deliver pain medications to the intrathecal space directly.
Intrathecal drug delivery is a proven, effective treatment alternative when other pain treatments provide unsatisfactory relief. Intrathecal Pump therapy can offer good to excellent pain relief, and improve a patient’s ability to go about daily activities. This is a great alternative for pain management and is especially well suited to cancer patients.
