About Nerve Stimulation
Tricity Pain Associates is proud to offer innovative pain management care to our local New Braunfels and Seguin, TX communities. There are several factors that can lead to chronic pain, such as a severe injury, a preexisting health condition, or not healing properly after a previous surgery. To treat such pain, we recommend peripheral nerve field stimulation. This is a procedure that uses gentle electrical pulses to interrupt nerve signals, preventing the sensation of pain. It is applied directly to the skin to target small nerve fibers within the subcutaneous layer of tissue. External wires are inserted into the area of concern to apply the electrodes and a separate handheld device is used to control the nerve stimulation system. Countless patients have experienced great results with this treatment.
"Dr V is both a doctor and a friend. He treats his patients with empathy and consideration. You will never feel rushed in his care and he provides wholistic options for pain management. He shows incredible patience in a field where chronic pain leads to frustration and it is often difficult for the patient to verbalize their issues. Highly recommend Dr. V!"- J.A. / Google / Mar 23, 2021

"I cannot begin to explain how much Dr. V as helped me over the last year. I came to him at the recommendation of my rheumatologist due to an undiagnosed pain in my lower back. The pain was so intense I was unable to find any comfortable position much less sleep. From my first visit, I realized Dr. V was different. He spent time with me, listened to me, and was genuinely concerned about the ulceration (later diagnosed as lupus panniculitis) on my lower back and the immense pain it was causing. He was able to provide me with immediate relief. After my surgery, his office worked to get me in as soon as possible to adjust my medication. When Dr. V saw me hunched over, barely able to move, and walking with a walker, he told me he would take care of me, and he did. He adjusted my medication, and I was able to return to work when the surgeon released me. Besides his medical knowledge, Dr. V always made me feel that he cared about me as a person not just a patient. I would recommend Dr. V to anyone who is living with pain and wants their life back."- M.H. / Google / Dec 26, 2020

Nerve Stimulation Treatment
Since peripheral nerve field stimulation involves the use of electrical pulses, a trial run is conducted before the long-term placement of the stimulation system. If the trial run is deemed successful and you have experienced significant improvement in your nerve pain, we will move forward with treatment. On the day of your procedure, we will ensure the lead wire and generator are secured properly underneath the surface layer of your skin. We will review how to control the device with the external remote, and you will be free to return home.
If you are tired of battling chronic nerve pain, we invite you to call Tricity Pain Associates in New Braunfels or Seguin, TX to learn more about peripheral nerve field stimulation.
