Chronic pain patients are generally prescribed powerful medication on a regular basis, a solution that is certainly momentarily effective but frequently accompanied by unpleasant collateral effects.
At the forefront of innovation, Privatklinik Bethanien today, offers its patients the perspective of a normal life by implementing an alternative pain treatment technique. This procedure involves the insertion of wireless neuro-stimulators to reduce and even sidestep, in some cases, the long-term consumption of potentially damaging medications.
Neuro-stimulators are introduced into the spinal cord and low or high frequency electrical impulses, driven by a wireless device, stimulate the peripheral nerve. Pain levels can be significantly reduced. After a short hospital stay, patients are free to resume an almost normal daily life.
Only proposed in a very limited number of hospitals in Switzerland, Dr. Daniel Herschkowitz, Specialist in Interventional Pain Treatment, Anesthesiology and Emergency care medicine, performs this highly innovative procedure at the exclusive, Privatklinik Bethanien, with the distinctive option of non-ambulatory pain relief management.
