Dr. Tarabishy has special interest and continued research in the latest and most effective for this very challenging condition. He spent part of his interventional pain training at CRPS Center of Excellence at Case Western University Hospitals under the Vice President of NANS (North American Neuromodulation Society). We take a thorough, comprehensive and aggressive approach for the diagnosis and management of CRPS.
In lucky cases where we get to see the patient early in the course of the disease, a combination of early comprehensive and aggressive desensitization therapy along with nerve stabilizing medications with or without sympathetic blocks can cure the disease and prevent it from developing into a chronic state.
For chronic resistant intractable cases, we utilize a multimodal approach to improve the quality of life of CRPS sufferers. DRG stimulation has shown the greatest promise and most dramatic results for otherwise resistant intractable cases that fail to respond to treatments.
Some of the treatments available for chronic severe cases:
- Physical therapy
- Psychological therapy and pain psychology
- Sympathetic and peripheral nerve blocks
- Ketamine and Lidocaine IV infusions
- Oral Medications
- Spinal cord stimulation
- Dorsal Root ganglion stimulation
- Peripheral Nerves stimulation
- Intrathecal pain pumps
