This week, the Wall Street Journal featured Dr. Christopher Winfree from the Peripheral Nerve and Pain Centers in an article called New Ways to Treat Pain; Tricking the Brain, Blocking the Nerves in Patients When All Else Has Failed.
The article is about state-of-the-art treatments for chronic pain including Neuromodulation, a new area of medicine where surgeons implant electrical devices to override pain signals to the brain.
The article describes a woman, Leah Weinberg, who suffered from excruciating back pain for years until Dr. Winfree helped her with one such procedure.
Within the online article you can also watch a video interview with Dr. Winfree explaining new remote-control pain relieving devices. Check it out!
