PAIN SURGERY

Chronic pain affects up to 20% of the Australian population. The vast majority of pain problems can be well managed by your general practioner or medical pain specialist.

Neurosurgeons with special training may be able to perform surgery to reduce or modulate the pain from certain chronic pain conditions. If direct surgery to the injured area is not possible, neurostimulation, or electrical stimulation of peripheral nerves, spinal cord or the brain may be an option to help reduce pain and improve function.
