Our next guest is Corey W. Hunter, MD: Dr. Hunter is an interventional pain specialist at the Ainsworth Institute of Pain Management and assistant clinical professor at Mount Sinai. His upcoming research on DRG therapy will appear in the scientific journal Neuromodulation. Dr. Hunter discusses chronic pain and enlightens us on pain management, and answers questions about DRG stimulation and describe candidates for this type of therapy. Joining Dr. Hunter is Doug Rodd (Patient): Doug is a medically retired U.S. Army paratrooper (82nd Airborne) who damaged both his knees after many years of active duty. As a result of surgeries to correct his condition, he developed CRPS. DRG therapy allowed Doug to stop his reliance on opioids and found an effective way to manage his chronic pain.
Pain Awareness Month is September and nearly 100 million Americans experience chronic pain, a largely misunderstood condition. It is defined as moderate to severe pain that persists for six months or longer than would be expected for recovery. Complex Regional Pain Syndrome – or CRPS – is a chronic pain condition following an injury or trauma. People living with CRPS—referred to as the “suicide disease”—often experience prolonged or excessive pain believed to be caused in part by damaged or malfunctioning nerves.
