Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation To Treat Pain

Introduction To Neuromodulation

Neuromodulation is a term used to describe a rapidly developing technology utilized by physicians to manipulate the human nervous system to achieve a desired outcome. Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) has been a treatment option for nerve pain syndromes for several decades, and recent advances have yielded better outcomes than previously recorded.

Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation (DRG-S) is a form of Neuromodulation where an electrical field is placed over the DRG. This type of stimulation has demonstrated superior pain relief when compared to traditional SCS for treating Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) and post-surgical nerve pain.

Dr. Alexis is a miracle worker. My back was killing me for the longest time and he made me feel better. He also helped my husband with his neck. I would refer him to anyone who’s having back, neck and knee pain or for any nerve pain for that matter. Great personality.Don’t hesitate to go to him anytime . God bless him ????

I have been Dr. Akuamoah’s patient since 2017 and I have to say that she is the greatest. She is an excellent doctor that understands my pain and targets my pain. She is the best and to top it off she has not lost the human kindness that most doctors loose for some reason. I visit the Spine and pain institute and all of the doctors... are excellent as well as the staff. Everyone there is great and very understanding, they get your more

Dr. Uel Alexis is always kind, courteous and professional.Some of his team members not so much,Upon arrival I approached the assistant at the front desk to check in and was greeted with such rudeness it’s confusing. After my procedure I’m behind the curtains getting dressed suddenly a different assistant just pulled the curtains open ... to get the blood pressure machine. Then she proceeds to pullthe curtains all the way back without any question. Thankfully I was dressed! This is insane, then I was told I can leave with nothing mentioned about my next appointment. Wow!read more
