Dr. Ramchandani focuses his efforts on exhausting all available alternative treatments for patients before recommending surgery.
Spinal cord stimulation, also called SCS, is a method for back pain treatment that is employed primarily to determine if surgery is necessary for a patient. SCS applies electrical impulses for the relief of chronic back pain, arm pain and leg pain. The goal is for these electrical impulses to interrupt the pain signals from being received by the brain. Optimal SCS candidates are those suffering from neuropathic pain for whom more conservative approaches have been unsuccessful. Pain Care Physicians specializes in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R), focusing on diagnostic and therapeutic PM&R methods. Evidence-based diagnostic and interventional techniques promote recovery from accidents and help to relieve chronic pain.
