How Beneficial Are Surgical Implants for Chronic Pain
Surgical implants are becoming a powerful weapon in the fight against chronic pain amid the backdrop of the peaking opioid crisis, as doctors look for safer ways to help patients cope with their discomfort.
One of the doctors leading this emerging and important trend is Dr. Nikesh Seth of the Scottsdale, AZ-based Integrated Pain Consultants. Dr. Seth says that dangerous and addictive medications have been used to mask pain for far too long, with disastrous results. He is heartened by the fact that the healthcare industry appears to finally be getting shaken out of its own pill-dependent malaise.
