Sacral Dorsal Root Ganglion Spinal Stimulation
Sacral dorsal root ganglion stimulation (DRGS) is a valuable tool used in the treatment of chronic neuropathic pain, chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS) Types I and Type II in the foot and/or ankle. Although both spinal stimulation and DRGS apply energy to disrupt pain signals, DRGS is able to more specifically target areas of focal neuropathic pain. The specialized lead placement developed ensures reproducible results and stability in amount of pain relief provided. Significantly better outcomes are achievable when utilizing sacral DRGS and properly executed lead placement technique in patients who suffer from focal neuropathic pain in the feet and/or ankles without diffuse pain within the lumbar spine and/or lower extremities.
