Sarasota Pain Relief Centers is proud to announce the mild® procedure as a treatment option for patients who suffer from Lumbar Spinal Stenosis (LSS). The mild® procedure is cutting-edge new technology which allows more patients to seek treatment locally without the burden of having to travel.

Dr. Myrdalis Diaz-Ramirez, Board Certified and Fellowship Trained Pain Medicine Physician, is one of the first physicians to perform the mild®procedure in Sarasota County.

The mild® procedure is used to treat LSS, a condition which occurs when the spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal cord nerves in the lower back. LSS is more prevalent amongst the aging population who can experience thickening of ligament tissue, osteoarthritis or bulging of the discs. This can cause the narrowing of the spinal canal and contributes to the following common symptoms:

  • Pain or numbness in the lower back when standing upright.
  • Pain, numbness or tingling in the legs or buttocks with walking.
  • Marked symptom relief when bending forward at the waist, sitting or lying down.

Amputees Find Relief from Phantom Limb Pain with DRG Stimulation Therapy

[fa icon="calendar'] Apr 13, 2018 1:41:05 AM / by Pain Relief Centers posted in back pain, Interventional Pain Medicine, tampa pain relief doctor, DRG Stimulation

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

After undergoing the amputation of a limb, patients may experience Phantom Limb Pain (PLP), a neuropathic condition in which pain is perceived as emanating from the amputated limb. This condition is difficult to treat using common pharmaceutical options, which are often ineffective or unbearable for the patient.

In search of an alternative solution for PLP and other pain-producing conditions, clinical trials were conducted to study the effects of Dorsal Root Ganglion (DRG) Stimulation therapy in patients experiencing pain. While the results varied between different clinical studies and patients, common consensus found that DRG Stimulation can be an effective tool in the treatment of pain arising from PLP and other conditions, with a high average of pain reduction in a majority of patients.

Neurostimulation Therapy Produces Remarkable Results for Treatment of Back Pain

[fa icon="calendar'] Apr 11, 2018 12:22:30 AM / by Pain Relief Centers posted in Interventional Pain Medicine, back pain, neurostimulation therapy

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

If you suffer from a condition known as Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS), then Neurostimulation therapy may be recommended to help alleviate your back pain. FBSS affects approximately 40% of patients who have had previous spinal surgery, resulting in new or persistent pain subsequent to the procedure.

FBSS patients may experience:

  • Back or leg pain that increases over time due to the building up of scar tissue around spinal nerve roots
  • Persistent tissue pain
  • Muscle spasm
  • Worsening condition with repeated back surgery

Neurostimulation therapy is most often recommended when more conservative pain management therapies have failed.

Dr. Miguel Attias of Tampa PRC Offers Powerful Alternative for Pain Relief Without Addictive Medications

[fa icon="calendar'] Apr 3, 2018 2:09:01 PM / by Pain Relief Centers posted in back pain, Interventional Pain Medicine, tampa pain relief doctor, spinal cord stimulation

Dr. Attias has been practicing specialized pain management in Palm Harbor for nearly a decade, and he was one of the first physicians in the area to begin offering an opioid-free alternative treatment after it was approved by the FDA in 2015: Spinal Cord Stimulation.

Since that time, he has seen patients’ lives improved dramatically due to this alternative treatment that eliminates the need for addictive pain medications by way of a battery-operated device that's implanted into the patient to control pain through constant electronic impulses directly into the nerves.

Dr. Attias asserts that opioids are ineffective in treating long-term chronic pain due to tolerance build-up and the potential for addiction, whereas the alternative spinal cord stimulation treatment enables patients to feel only relief, without the side effects of opioid medications.
