As we officially observe Veterans Day today, let us keep in mind the physical and mental sacrifices of military service. I have treated veterans with a multitude of neurologic and orthopedic injuries. Sometimes their injuries are underestimated. As healthcare providers we all need to be in tune with their unique needs.

Placement of spinal cord stimulator leads between T8-T10 as an end-stage option for chronic back and lower leg pain.  Leads are placed in the posterior aspect of the spinal canal and midline (in parallel).

Spinal cord stimulators are by far one of my favorite procedures, and one of the most successful treatments pain specialists have to offer certain patients.🏅
-
Many patients that elect spinal cord stimulation (SCS) have persistent low back and lower extremity pain after back surgery. This is unfortunately a common problem because of the scarring that occurs around the nerves near where the surgery is done. Back surgery is wonderful for restoring nerve function and muscle strength, but imperfect at relieving pain. But now we have powerful treatments like this to help! 💪🏾
-
SCS has been around for decades, but only in the past five years or so has the technology evolved and provided profound pain relief for patients with certain chronic pain conditions. The procedure is done by placing wires capable of transmitting electrical currents into the epidural space of the spine. In a nutshell, these wires block the pain signals sent from damaged nerves in the back and lower extremities from reaching the brain by “stimulating” the back portion of the spinal cord.⚡️⚡️⚡️

Though the month is over, the fight continues. I too lost a loved one at a very young age (RIP 😇❤️ & HBD 🎂😪). She was very healthy with no risk factors. In remembering her, I’m reminded that life is short. Cherish it. Spread love. Those we have lost would want it that way. But while we look for cures we must focus on prevention. One way to do that it is to be mindful of what we consume and what we ingest. The environmental contribution to cancer is something that we can control if nothing else. #fukcancer🎀 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #RestoreYourBest #IPM #interventionalspine #painmanagement #painfreeliving #foodismedicine #fitnessmotivation #bestdoctor #doctorpreneur #vegandoctor #spinedoctor #paindoctor #theveganpaindoctor #neuromodulation #spinalcordstimulation #radiofrequencyablation #intrathecalpainpump #regenerativemedicine

E 95 Guidelines for PRP, RFA, Stem Cells, Neuromodulation Dr @BrianKRichMD  Learn the in’s and outs of the following procedures, answer patient questions and make appropriate referrals: PRP, radiofrequency ablation, stem cells, kyphoplasty, epidural steroid injections. Regenerative Medicine. LISTEN NOW https://buff.ly/2SaqIX4

First thing we do on the interview is define all the non-surgical approaches out there for spine and extremity joint pain. If we aren’t all on the same page, confusion can happen.

Dr. Rich will discuss when, why, risk factors and benefits of each procedure mentioned.  When would you use peripheral nerve stimulation versus the radiofrequency ablation RFA? Genicular nerve, clunial nerve for example.
Which nerve is the most common for cervicogenic headaches? 
When would you use bone marrow concentrate instead of plasma and why is it so important to have a good ultra-sonographer helping you.  Should you use 
If you do have to have a full blown surgery to repair a shoulder, can you get a shot of PRP before they sew you up to improve the results? 
Why is guided needle insertion so important vs just blinded or palpating?
Why is regenerative medicine not really regulated by the FDA? 
What are the criteria for compression fracture kyphoplasty? 
What are pulmonary and cardiac PRP injections?
When should you refer to a regenerative medicine specialist?
Why does Dr. Brian Rich choose not to do very many epidural steroid injections, ESI? When should you do ESI and when not?

Thanks for the #7dayveggie  campaign @theveggiemd. I’ve been vegan for 2 years or so but had contemplated for several years prior. I accomplished this by giving up meat : pork, beef, poultry, and fish in that order was easiest for me. It wasn’t too difficult but took several years. I admit that social outings and holidays were tough. Summer cookouts and thanksgiving especially. Then I worked to eliminate dairy: milk, eggs, butter, and cheese. This was the hardest. This meant no ice cream! I actually just read why this is so ... Because casein digests so slowly, natural morphine-like substances in casein known as casomorphins, act like opiates in the body as they enter the bloodstream. Just minutes after you eat a dairy-based food, the casein protein begins to break down. This releases the drug-like casomorphins, which attach to opiate receptors in the brain and cause severe addictions to dairy products... Wow, to think that I was actually addicted. But overtime I found that it was easier and easier to be disciplined and satisfied with plant based options. And now I love it. It’s now second nature to make substitutions at home or out in a social setting. And the possibilities within a vegan diet are infinite! #govegan 🌱

This is the interface for the @abbottglobal DRG stimulator programming. The physician or device rep will use this device to change the settings of the implanted DRG leads. ———————————————————————————
On the left, the four implanted leads are seen and different electrodes within each lead can be managed. In the middle is the parameters that may be optimized, including frequency (hertz), pulse width (microseconds), and amplitude (milliamps). On the far right we are able to program specific settings so the patient can know exactly which areas are being covered by the stimulation, making the program very user friendly. ———————————————————————————
This option is the newest technology pain physicians have to successfully treat different pain states. For high quality evidence of its effectiveness, check out the ACCURATE study.

Dr. Tatevossian & Dr. Ajakwe held an event last month at the surgery center for the UCLA Anesthesia Fellowship program. This is one of the 3 annual courses we do at the surgery center. These Fellows got to hear, observe & learn from the experiences Dr. Tatevossian & Dr. Ajakwe’s have had in spinal cord stimulation.
.
The course is a 3 part process:
1st, is a power point presentation where the Fellows get to dive into Nevro HF10 technology & learn about what differentiates us from traditional spinal cord stimulation. During the presentation Dr. Tatevossian & Dr. Ajakwe share their results of how well their patients are doing w/the Nevro device. They also get to ask the doctors questions as it relates to difficult cases, case management, personnel, product & private practice business acumen.
.
2nd, they get the opportunity to observe 1 spinal cord stimulation trial & 1 spinal cord stimulation implant. During this time the MDs are showing the Fellows various techniques & approaches to these 2 types of cases. This is valuable information to the Fellows as it will help them better understand difficulties they can & will come across in their careers. It also allows them to be more efficient w/their procedures.
.
3rd, after the case observation the Fellows get a chance to apply these learnings on a cadaver Nevro supplies. The Fellows get the opportunity to drive leads into the epidural space, create a pocket for the IPG & anchoring techniques.
.
Dr. Tatevossian & Dr. Ajakwe have set the golden standard for these fellowship programs across the country. Since opening the surgery center, they have done 4 of these programs & we have 2 more coming up before the end of the year. This program helps better prepare these Fellows for the challenges & decisions they will face once they move into their careers.

📣 HF10 – A Breakthrough Pain Treatment 📣
.
🔹What is HF10?🔹
The @nevro_hf10 is a type of Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) and is named for its ability to deliver high-frequency stimulation at 10 kHz.
.
It is a non-addictive, minimally-invasive and reversible option that provides patients with long-term chronic pain relief.
.
It is FDA-approved for driving and is covered by Medicare and most private insurers.
.
.
🔹How Does it Work?🔹
Evidence shows that delivering mild electrical pulses to the nerves interrupts the transmission of pain signals to the brain, thus reducing pain.
.
A small device is implanted under the skin, just above the beltline or in the buttocks area that transmits mild electrical pulses to the spinal cord, calming the nerves and reducing pain signals to the brain.
.
Implanting HF10 is typically an outpatient procedure, which means you will likely go home the same day.

#fbf @midwestspine turned 1. 🎂This week marks year 4. To think about where we started, to where we are now it’s truly amazing. To think about the blessing it was for God to remove me from a bad employment situation and enable me to find a way as a business owner... I can only be thankful! There is no better way to honor Him them to fulfill the purpose He has for you. There were sleepless nights but never doubt or despair because I knew He was at work. Thanks to those who saw the vision and supported from the beginning. And to those who didn’t, thanks for the motivation 🙏🏾.

The opioid crisis is a highly controversial and politicized topic. But the impact on the community cannot be minimized. The data suggests that the number of legitimate opioid prescriptions for pain have decreased significantly, however the death toll is rising. This is due to the lethality of using illicit opioids (ie heroin) or illegally obtained opioids which may altered and administered via more dangerous routes of administration (ie IV). I wanted to share some information (Swipe for more info>>>) from the CDC that every healthcare provider should be aware of. We all have a responsibility to our patients to manage their pain in a responsible manner and to the community to minimize the possibility of drug manipulation or diversion.
