Implantable therapies to control malignant and non-malignant pain

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Implantable therapies are extremely effective, simple, nondestructive, and reversible methods of controlling both chronic and cancer pain. The advantages provided by the improved pain control that implantable therapies offer are: decreased medication reliance; fewer hospitalizations; fewer dollars spent on medical care; improved activity and independent functioning; improved employment possibilities; and better lifestyle and quality of life.
