Back pain is debilitating. It can leave even the toughest people bed-ridden, unable to make a living and provide for their families. As the wave of the baby boomer generation crashes against the shores of retirement and golden age, more people every day are searching for solutions. Top pain management doctor Dr. Sham Vengurlekar, Scottsdale’s premiere pain specialist, has spent more than three decades treating patients with a variety of debilitating pain-related ailments and specializes in back pain.
The top pain management doctor in Scottsdale, Dr. Vengurlekar, knows that many other doctors would rather treat the symptoms of back pain than deal with the problem itself by prescribing pain medications like oxycodone (oxycontin) and hydrocodone (vicodin). Relying on pain medication for pain relief is impractical, expensive, and can lead to habit-forming addictions to opiates. For these reasons and more, Dr. Vengurlekar prefers using the latest technological procedures to cure the root cause of patients’ back pain.
For years, procedures for curing back pain involved multiple surgeries, sticking gigantic needles in a patient’s back and injecting a patient’s spine with a larger than necessary volume of steroids to try and cure the pain. But with recent advancements in medical technology combined with the skilled hands of a professional like Dr. Vengurlekar, patients no longer have to suffer.
Top pain management specialist Dr. Vengurlekar’s most popular procedure for healing back pain is known as a Transformational Selective Root Sleeve Injection. Unlike an epidural injection that inserts a large bore needle into the middle of the spine and injects a sizable quantity of steroid into the outer most layer around the spinal cord, the Transformational Selective Root Sleeve Injection is a small, precise, injection using a local anesthetic and a small amount of steroid to hit very close to the nerve station and relieve back pain.
Certified in anesthesiology and pain management, Dr. Vengurlekar uses the latest technologies to offer pain relief in procedures that are less painful, is covered by most major insurances and offers reduced recovery times.
