New Technology for Managing Back Pain

Hosted by Michael Sabia, MD

Do you have questions about back pain? You're not alone.

Back pain affects nearly 13 million Americans and is the second most common reason for lost days of work. There are many methods for managing pain, and some of the most innovative and promising treatments involve the use of technology by way of interventional procedures.

Cooper University Hospital’s Pain Management program is an interdisciplinary program with a unique specialty in technology-based interventional pain management.

Technological treatments available for back pain include radiofrequency thermal coagulation for cervical, thoracic and lumbar spondylosis pain; and spinal cord stimulation for post laminectomy syndrome, complex regional pain syndrome and peripheral vascular disease.

Join us as pain management physician Michael Sabia, MD, will answer your questions about interventional pain management for back pain, live on cooperhealth.org.
