Our Neurosurgical Pain Center specializes in the neurosurgical research and treatment of chronic pain disorders. Chronic pain is a common problem worldwide and the most common cause of disability in the United States.
Dr. Christopher Winfree specializes in the neurosurgical treatment of chronic pain disorders and recommends a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach. Patients work with their existing physicians, which include primary care physicians, neurologists and pain management physicians to exhaust non and less invasive treatment options (some treatments listed below) before seeing Dr. Winfree.
If the above noninvasive strategies are insufficient, then a patient may be a candidate for a number of different injection therapies.
Patients who do not get sufficient pain relief with nonoperative strategies may then be considered for more aggressive neurosurgical pain management strategies. Dr. Christopher Winfree specializes in these strategies and Dr. Sameer Sheth can help determine whether you might be a good candidate for the 3rd strategy listed below.
