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 Florida 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.
