About Nerve Stimulation
Peripheral nerve field stimulation is a minimally invasive technique for relieving chronic pain caused by migraines, neuropathy, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), and other conditions. The procedure positions electrodes beneath the skin in areas where the pain is originating or adjacent to affected peripheral nerves (those located outside of the spinal cord and brain). An external device, which is controlled by the patient, then transmits mild electrical pulses to the targeted area, relieving the sensation of pain. Peripheral nerve field stimulation may be an ideal treatment option for a range of patients, depending on individual symptoms, conditions, and medical history. Tricity Pain Associates is pleased to serve the Round Rock and South Austin, TX communities with excellence in specialized pain management care. To learn if peripheral nerve field stimulation can help diminish your chronic pain, contact one of our practices today to reserve your initial consultation.

"I have nothing but great things to say about Dr.Kim ! This is my first experience with a pain management doctor and I highly recommend Dr.Kim .Nerve and chronic pain can be debilitating and that's exactly what I was experiencing 6 months ago when I first came to Dr.Kim.Wasnt sure what to expect but after Dr.Kim quickly diagnosed me with stenosis and a bone spur causing the pain and inflammation he wasted no time in treating me with a series of injections, pain medications and physical therapy. While I am not quite back to 100% I am in a MUCH BETTER place than I was 6 months ago.Dr.Kim is truly sincere about your needs when it comes to injuries and pain and he is a GREAT listener!

Nerve Stimulation Treatment
Before beginning the procedure, our team will thoroughly numb the treatment area with a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable. Live-feed x-ray technology will be utilized to guide the precise positioning of electrodes within the treatment locations. Electrical pulses will then be delivered to the nerves and other tissues through an external device. A temporary device may be left in place for about a week to monitor pain relief and evaluate treatment results. If the outcome proves successful, a permanent unit may be positioned to help manage pain over the long-term. Peripheral nerve field stimulation is generally successful for every two out of three individuals; however, overall results may vary among patients.
