Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation- DRG

DRG therapy can treat chronic pain associated with CRPS or causalgia of the lower body including: Pelvis, Groin, Knee, Ankle, Hip, Foot. A Dorsal Root Ganglion (DRG) stimulator is a small device surgically placed under your skin, over a bundle of nerves called the Dorsal Root Ganglion.

A thin wire carries electrical impulses from a programmable pulse generator to the dorsal root ganglion. At this time DRG stimulation is FDA approved for lower extremity Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and Phantom Limb Syndrome with pain.

The DRG stimulator can be turned on or off. Pain is reduced because the electrical impulses modify and mask the pain signal from reaching your brain. Stimulation does not eliminate the source of pain, it simply interferes with the signal to the brain. The amount of pain relief varies for each person.
