Sacral Nerve Stimulation SNS

Sacral nerve stimulation permits electrical stimulation of the sacral nerves via an implantable neurostimulator device.

It is meant to treat following conditions:

  • Refractory urgency, urge incontinence
  • Voiding difficulty
  • Pelvic pain
  • Faecal incontinence
  • Constipation
  • Anal pain
  • faecal incontinence
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Spinal injury
  • Neurodegenerative disease
  • Sexual dysfunction

Stimulation of the sacral nerve causes contraction of external sphincter and pelvic floor muscle which causes the inhibition of bladder contractions which may be involuntarily releasing urine. Researchers currently believe that the sacral neuromodulation blocks the c-afferent fibers, which are an important  part of the afferent limb of a reflex pathway believed to be responsible for incontinence.

Sacral nerve stimulation is a promising and durable treatment for  refractory conditions. All patients have reported major benefit for above mentioned conditions.

It is a most latest and advanced method of treatment which is advised when all medicines have failed to provide relief  in the world and is now available in Lahore, Pakistan.

 

Intrathecal Baclofen Pump IBP

Intrathecal Baclofen Pump is meant to treat Spasticity of lower limbs and  in few cases of upper limb due to spinal cord injury and spinal diseases.

It is a method of treatment where all other methods have failed to reduce spasticity which can lead to irritabilty of lower limds and sudden jerks making life uncomfortable for the patient.

Spasticity causes severe muscle spasm leading to feeling of tightness and pain around joints and also back. It can also cause uncontrollable painful muscle  contractions and involuntary crossing of the legs. Muscle and joint deformities.

Following are the major causes of Spasticity in which Baclofen Pump implant placement is indicated:

  • Spinal cord injury (SCI)
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Brain damage due to a lack of oxygen
  • Stroke
  • Encephalitis
  • Meningitis

Long term results are satisfying and excellent.

It is a most latest and advanced method of treatment which is advised when all medicines have failed to provide  relief  in the world and is now available in Lahore, Pakistan.

Vagal Nerve Stimulation VNS

Vagal nerve Stimulation is meant for intractable epilepsy which fails to be controlled by medication and all medicines have failed.

It is a pace maker placed underneath the skin which sends electrical impulses through vagus nerve to stop epileptic fits.

The benefits of VNS in EPILEPSY can include the following:

  • Decreased seizures
  • Less severe seizures or shorter seizures
  • Improved quality of life

It is a most latest and advanced method of treatment which is advised when all medicines have failed to provide relief in the world and is now available in Lahore, Pakistan.

Spinal Cord Stimulation SCS

Spinal cord stimulation is a treatment meant to cure severe chronic pains because of following reasons:

  1. Brachial Plexus Injury Pain
  2. Failed back syndrome Pain
  3. Phantom limb pain after Amputation
  4. Chronic leg and arm pain
  5. Chronic burning pain
  6. Stump pain
  7. Angina pain
  8. Peripheral vascular disease pain
  9. Multiple sclerosis pain
  10. Spinal cord injury pain

Prof Shahzad Shams is the  Pioneer and First Neurosurgeon in Pakistan to use the Spinal Cord Stimulation in patients with intractable pain or burning sensation secondary to above reasons. He is the best in Spinal Cord Stimulation.

Spinal cord stimulator is a device placed under the scan which gives electrical impulses to spinal cord through a wire which masks the Chronic pain and burning sensations by stimulating the nerves causing pain.

It is a most latest and advanced method of treatment which is advised when all medicines have failed to provide relief  in the world and is now available in Lahore, Pakistan.
