Minimally Invasive Procedures
You don’t have to live with relentless pain. At Synergy, our minimally invasive procedures bring immediate, permanent relief to our patients. They don’t require long-term stays, drawn out recovery times, or a dependence on medications. Our patients report that they look better, feel better, and have more energy than they did prior to surgery.
If you live with fractures in the spine due to osteoporosis or spinal tumors, you don’t have to suffer. Synergy has a 30-minute solution for back fracture pain that brings immediate, permanent relief without dependence on medications. Kyphoplasty is used to heal spinal compression fractures and commonly performed in the office without a hospital stay. The procedure restores and re-stabilizes patients’ spinal strength while helping them return to their natural height and posture.
End The Pain Today!
A pain pump is a small, programmable system that suppresses pain signals by delivering targeted doses of medication into the spinal region. This safe and proven therapy is used to reduce chronic pain while utilizing a fraction of the typical dose required with oral pain medications. Not only does this mean less medication is needed to treat pain, but it also reduces risks associated with oral opioid medications. Our clients report faster, stronger pain relief and fewer side effects of sedation, nausea, constipation, and itching compared to oral medications.
Spinal Cord Stimulator
Long-term pain requires long-term solutions. Spinal cord stimulation is a highly advanced and powerful technology that, in the hands of our uniquely qualified specialists, can offer permanent, substantial pain relief. This minimally invasive treatment uses a rechargeable and programmable implanted device, much like a small pacemaker for the spine, to treat chronic back, leg, head, neck, arm, abdominal, and pelvic pain. Synergy provides spinal cord stimulation therapy as an effective alternative or supplement to other therapies.
The goal of spinal cord stimulation is improvement in function of activities of daily living and a pain reduction greater than 50% of baseline. We perform trials for spinal cord stimulators in the office and trials for dorsal root ganglion stimulation in the hospital setting.
Synergy Healthcare Solutions has extensive experience with trialing spinal cord stimulators in the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine as well as dorsal root ganglion stimulation. We are highly skilled with both the trial phase and the permanent implantation phase.
We utilize several different brands, including: Saint Jude / Abbott burst DR spinal cord stimulation as well as Dorsal Root Ganglion stimulation, Nevro high frequency or 10 K spinal cord stimulation, Medtronic HD spinal cord stimulation, and Boston scientific Waverider.
When doing a spinal cord stimulator evaluation, patients are first sent to a psychologist who will help interpret the degree the patient has been educated regarding the stimulator. This is a requirement by insurance carriers as part of the overall evaluation. The referral to the psychologist is not to determine whether the patient is being considered to have psychological or psychogenic pain. The patient being evaluated for a spinal cord stimulator by definition is felt to have pain of a nociceptive or neuropathic origin and not psychogenic pain. Patients may sometimes misinterpret this referral to the psychologist as their doctor or provider not believing their pain is valid. It is our goal to reassure them otherwise.
