At Precision Brain, Spine and Pain Centre, we assess, manage and care for patients who are experiencing a wide variety of pain syndromes and painful conditions.
PAIN RELIEVING PROCEDURES
The specialist surgeons at Precision use a variety of surgical and less invasive techniques to relieve pain.
Common procedures include:
- Nerve and facet joint blocks
- Radiofrequency ablations
- Pulsed radiofrequency neurotomies
- Deep brain stimulation
- Intrathecal morphine pumps
- Motor cortex stimulation
- Peripheral nerve stimulation
- Peripheral nerve decompression
- Radiofrequency and chemical rhizolysis
- Spinal cord stimulation
- Spinal decompression and stabilisation
- Stereotactic radiosurgery
Many of these techniques are minimally invasive, don’t require open surgery, and are performed on an outpatient basis or during a short stay in hospital.
WHO IS SUITABLE FOR THESE APPROACHES?
Patients with any of the above listed conditions may be suitable for pain relief surgery or non-surgical interventions.
Before a procedure is recommended as an option we utilise a multidisciplinary team approach and draw on the expertise of pain physicians, anaesthetists, psychologists, and specialist nurses. Each patient is carefully evaluated and, if suitable for pain relief surgery, is offered the most appropriate procedure for their specific condition.
