Chronic pain affects millions of Americans every day. It has an effect on physical, mental, and emotional well-being, and can make even simple tasks impossible. Prescription medications may initially be helpful, but carry risk of unpleasant side effects and increased dosing after long-term use. Additionally, oral medication takes time to travel through the blood stream and into the nervous system, spine, and brain, all while pain is still being experienced.
The Prometra® drug delivery system delivers medication directly to the spine, effectively targeting the source. The physician is able to adjust the dosing and time of medication to best fit your needs. Most patients only require a small amount of the specialized medication to receive benefits. The Prometra system is best-in-class for safety features and carries a high accuracy rate, minimizing risk for overdose or underdose.
Ask your current pain doctor if the Prometra system may be a beneficial therapy for you, or find a physician nearby who does the Prometra implantation procedure.
