When more conservative therapies have failed, pain management physicians often recommend spinal cord stimulation (SCS or neurostimulation therapy) for chronic pain relief.
SCS technology involves an implantable device that interrupts pain signals before they reach the brain, replacing those signals with a more pleasant sensation. This innovative treatment method has helped thousands of people significantly reduce their pain so they can return to their normal activities.
Dr. Amitabh Goel of Sarasota Pain Relief Centers has a special interest in the field of spinal cord stimulation. He has directly contributed to the advancement of this remarkable technology, having a number of innovative patents on improving the devices used for spinal cord stimulation.
Dr. Goel’s patents include:
- Patent for a paddle lead for spinal cord stimulation introduced percutaneously. This is a method for introducing a paddle lead without performing the traditional open surgery used currently for inserting a paddle lead. [US Patent No.8620456]
- Patent for a novel steering head for percutaneously inserted spinal cord stimulation leads. This is a new lead design with significant advantages in terms of steering the lead inside the spine. [US Patent No. 9114249]
- Electrode Assembly for Spinal Cord Stimulation. Novel electrode configuration for delivering spinal cord stimulation. [US Patent Application No. 0056070]
Dr. Goel has proven to be a dedicated innovator in the advancement of SCS technologies. Sarasota Pain Relief Centers is pleased to have his expert contributions to our team of pain management specialists.
