Pain Management

Our Expertise

We can offer surgical options to help many patients with intractable pain syndromes. Working closely with a Pain Management Physician, we can offer traditional medical management or minimally invasive surgical options.

  • Spinal Cord Stimulators
  • Intrathecal Pumps

Educational Information

Dr. Spence believes in educating patients on their diagnosis and procedure. If you have any questions, please let us know! 

Stimulators

Stimulators are an implanted device, in this case they are implanted into the spinal cord. The process takes two surgeries. One for trial and another for implantation. Stimulators are normally used after all other nonsurgical pain management methods have  been exhuasted.

Pumps
An Intrathecal pump is a method of giving medication directly to your spinal cord. The system uses a small pump that is surgically placed under the skin. The pump delivers medication through a catheter to the area around the spinal cord. Because the medication is delivered directly to the effected area, less is needed.

Evacuation Procedures, such as a Subdural Hematoma Evacuation, are surgeries used to remove a pooling of blood on the brain. A Subdural Hematoma can be caused by trauma but can also be spontaneous or caused by another procedure.
