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.

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.

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.
