Pain pumps are a great alternative for patients with Chronic non-cancer pain as well as terminal cancer patients requiring good pain control. Chronic non cancer patient candidates are those who have:
- Severe Degenerative arthritis.
- Prior low back surgery which did not help.
- Surgical misadventures with intractable body pain.
- Patients who have had multiple fractures due to falls or car accidents in severe pain.
- Chronic pain patients who are not able to tolerate oral pain medications due to side effects.
- Very helpful in patients diagnosed with Pancreatitis and suffer with pain.
There are 2 manufacturers of pain pumps, FLOWONIX and MEDTRONIC. If you or a family member or friend is suffering from chronic pain and not getting adequate pain relief give us a call and get a referral for a thorough Pain evaluation. "Quality of Life" should be a right, not an option.
