About Phantom Limb Pain
Phantom limb pain (PLP) is the uncomfortable sensation that patients experience from a limb that is no longer a part of the body. In cases of severe injury, trauma, or illness, an extremity, such as an arm, leg, hand, or foot, may need to be surgically removed. In many instances, patients feel pain or itchiness from the limb that has been amputated. This phenomenon is believed to be caused by misplaced sensory information by the brain. Symptoms include the sensation of acute or chronic cramping or stabbing pain, burning, itching, or throbbing. These side effects can occur weeks or even months after a limb has been surgically removed. If you are suffering from phantom limb pain, we invite you to call Tricity Pain Associates in New Braunfels and Seguin, TX to learn about all of your treatment options.
"I was truly impress with the treatment that was received from Dr. Sridhar Vasireddy. I had issues with my hip for over 6 months and was referred to Dr. Vasireddy. My treatment was a hip injection with sedation. Dr. V., was very detailed in explaining the procedure and the steps he would take. He concentrated on giving me the injection to an area was called “the ring”. I highly recommend Dr. Vasireddy. He is an awesome doctor!"- S.B. / Google / Apr 12, 2022

"I was referred to Dr. Vasireddy by the VA. I could walk only with a walker. After reviewing my MRI, he provided a plan of action with a series of injections and radio ablations. I can now walk nearly as well as prior to my incident. He also was able to provide relief for my popping, painful tailbone. I have had this condition for many years and no one has found the cause until I asked Dr. Vasireddy about it. He knew the problem, did some diagnostic test shots, and then radio ablation that really provided me with instant relief! My pain is now at least 90 % relieved! Thank You Dr. Vasireddy and also your very polite and courteous team."- C.M. / Google / Nov 18, 2021
