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

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

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.

Free Educational Seminar: Superion Indirect Decompression System

  • Do you suffer from pain when walking or standing?
  • Do you find relief when leaning over or sitting down?
  • Have you tried six months of conservative care treatment without finding relief from your pain?
  • Do you want to avoid undergoing major surgery?
If you answered "yes", we may have a solution for you!

Superion® Indirect Compression System

What is Superion®?


The Superion® device is a tiny titanium implant that is delivered through a tube the size of a dime. There is no removal of bone or tissue, and bleeding is minimal.

Superion® was developed for patients with spinal stenosis who have tried six months of consecutive care treatment without finding relief from their pain. It is also for patients whose medical history shows that Superion® may be their best treatment option because traditional spinal surgery could be too demanding.

How does Superion® work?


The Superion® device is designed to keep your spine positioned so that when you stand upright the nerves in your back will not be pinched. That pinching is what causes leg pain.
