Advanced Pain Institute of Texas, led by Dr. Eric Anderson and Dr. John Broadnax, is at the forefront of pain management and always has a solution to offer, no matter how complex the case is. The clinic’s commitment to staying updated with the latest technologies and procedures has led them to the discovery of a new and game-changing procedure called peripheral nerve stimulation.
Peripheral nerve stimulation is a treatment that reduces chronic pain in almost any part of the body, including knees, shoulders, hips, neck, back, and foot pain, as well as nerve-related trauma, headaches, continued pain after surgery, and other debilitating symptoms that have not responded to other treatment methods. Dr. Anderson explains that there has been an explosion of information in the pain management field over the past decade, and new treatment options are coming out rapidly.
The procedure involves implanting a tiny electrical micro-lead as close to the pain area as possible. The device comes with a remote for patients to adjust the amount of stimulation they receive, and the lead is removed after 60 days. Dr. Broadnax emphasizes that the lead is only 100 microns wide, which is about the size of a human hair. Many patients report that their pain is entirely gone at the end of the 60-day period, and some remain pain-free for 1-2 years.
Peripheral nerve stimulation is a new treatment option that provides hope for patients who have failed standard therapy or have challenging pain conditions. Dr. Anderson points out that most insurance policies cover the procedure, and it only takes about 30 minutes to perform. He adds that the treatment has opened up entirely new options for situations where other methods have failed, and patients are unsure where to go.
Advanced Pain Institute of Texas is located in Lewisville, and it offers a full-spectrum, multi-disciplinary approach to whole body pain management. The clinic provides the best patient-focused care for a wide range of chronic pain conditions. Dr. Anderson and Dr. Broadnax are excited about the new treatment option that they can offer their patients and look forward to continuing to be at the forefront of pain management.
