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

[fa icon="calendar'] Mar 1, 2018 2:45:32 AM / by Florida Pain Relief Centers posted in back pain, leg pain, Spinal Stenosis

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

  • 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.

Written by Dr. Amitabh Goel

No pain, no gain.
 Thousands of athletes live by this motto. But what if your pain is not the effect of your daily workout, but something you live with day after day?

Back and leg pain affects millions of Americans every year, causing loss of mobility, lost work, and frustration. The thought of invasive back surgery, with possible problems such as surgical scars, lengthy recovery time and time off from work, is a difficult prospect. However, there is now a treatment option that provides patients with new alternatives for a pain-free life.
