Chronic Pain

In addition to brain tumors, Neurosurgery of Kalamazoo diagnose and treat a variety of brain and skull related disorders and injuries. We can help relieve intense pain and our practice remains committed to developing and delivering effective treatments.



Post-Laminectomy Syndrome

This condition, also called “failed back syndrome,” is a type of chronic pain. It can develop in some people after spine surgery.


Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)

This is a type of chronic, long-lasting, pain. In most cases, it develops in an arm or a leg that you have previously injured. With CRPS, you may have unexplained pain that won’t go away. It may be severe, and it may spread.


Spinal Cord Stimulation (Paddle Lead)

Spinal cord stimulation (also called SCS) uses electrical impulses to relieve chronic pain of the back, arms and legs. It is believed that electrical pulses prevent pain signals from being received by the brain. SCS candidates include people who suffer from neuropathic pain and for whom conservative treatments have failed.
