Intrathecal Drug Delivery

Targeted drug delivery is a safe and effective way to manage chronic pain or cancer pain with fewer side effects and lower drug doses compared to oral pain medications. Effective pain control is achieved by delivering medication directly to the surrounding spinal cord by means of a programmable drug reservoir. After a successful trial, the drug pump and catheter are implanted beneath the skin. Medication doses are adjusted through a programming device, and patients can deliver medications when programmed by their doctor.
