Intrathecal Pump Implant (Pain Management)
Body Area: Legs / Feet
Body Parts: Knees
Symptoms: Inability to Bear Weight
An intrathecal pump is an implant that will deliver small quantities of medication (such as morphine) directly into your spinal fluid to continually block pain. The implant is considered to be permanent, so this surgery is not recommended for someone who can manage their pain effectively by other means.
