An Intrathecal Pump Implant is a pain management procedure that implants a pump in the body to help provide long-lasting pain relief. The pump sends medicine block pain signals in the an area around the spinal cord (“intrathecal space”). The procedure can be beneficial when other treatments have failed to provide pain relief. The patient returns to the doctor for regular visits to check the device and refill the medicine in the pump.
