Pain Pump Refills
Intrathecal drug delivery, or “pain pump” is a method of delivering a drug directly to a patient’s spinal cord. Pain pumps are typically a treatment option if traditional pain management methods are unable to relieve a patients’ long-term symptoms. Intrathecal, or direct-to-spinal cord delivery allows doctors to prescribe a much smaller dose of medication than is typical needed with an oral formulation. Generally, a patient needs 1/300 the amount of medication through a pain pump than when taken orally (morphine, as an example).
