What is Abdominal Pain?

Everyone since childhood has had abdominal pain. Most abdominal pains are temporary and non-consequential. Serious abdominal pain may have different origins. Just to name a few, they can include small and large intestine, gallbladder, urinary bladder, ovaries, autoimmune, ureters, kidneys, infections, and food allergies. When and sometimes, but rarely, we don’t have a diagnosis and have ruled out ischemic bowel, perforations, infections, autoimmune, and the patient is incapacitated, the use of spinal cord stimulator/neuromodulation should be seriously considered to block abdominal pain and to minimize or avoid the use of opiates and narcotics.

Although spinal cord stimulators are not approved yet for chronic intractable abdominal pain, Dr. Minehart has been able to use this modality for some of his patients.

If you have chronic intractable abdominal pain, Dr. Minehart would be the ideal person to see at the Advanced Pain Institute.
