A spinal pump can help provide round-the-clock relief for chronic pain. The pump is surgically placed under the skin of the abdomen, where it can deliver a measured and safe dose of medication directly to the spinal fluid. The spinal pump implant bypasses the gastrointestinal system and delivers medication into the cerebrospinal fluid, which can help increase a patient’s quality of life.
Benefits of Spinal Pumps
- Spinal pumps can help better control symptoms and reduces the need for oral medications, thereby reducing side effects.
- With a spinal pump, a patient generally needs 1/300th of the amount of medication than when orally taken.
- Spinal pump therapy is completely reversible.
