Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation (DRG) is used for difficult-to-treat chronic pain for patients with:
• Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS/RSD)
• Isolated chronic pain that could occur in the hip, knee, foot, or groin following an injury or surgical procedure and worsens over time.
Dr. Scott Taylor is one of the first five physicians in Indiana trained to perform this highly effective new outpatient therapy. DRG therapy has been used in Europe and Australia for several years and was recently approved in the United States by the FDA.
What Is DRG?
The Dorsal Root Ganglion (DRG) nerve cluster acts like a traffic light, regulating signals and sensations as they travel to the brain. Stimulation of the DRG can actually modify these signals resulting in the reduction of pain.
For patients with pain that is limited to a specific area of the body, DRG therapy often works where other treatments may not or provide partial relief. This is because the DRG corresponds to specific anatomical locations in the body and relays information, such as pain signals, to the brain.
You Can Try Out
The Temporary Device
One of the benefits of the DRG neurostimulation system is you can be fitted with a temporary device for 7-10 days that works like an implanted system but can be removed. This allows you to determine its effectiveness for your pain prior to undergoing a permanent implant.
