At the Ramos Center we understand chronic pain related to cancer can be different and more complex than non-cancer related pain. We are dedicated to helping cancer patients live their life to the fullest. Currently, we have two procedures targeted specifically for cancer patients the pain they endure. Both treatments can be performed before, during, and after traditional cancer therapies such as chemotherapy and radiation.
At Ramos Center we offer our patients targeted drug therapy treatments using the ITB Therapy (Intrathecal Baclofen Therapy) pump system. ITB is a targeted drug therapy that will distribute medication directly from a subdermal pump, into the area of your spinal cord that is affected by your condition.
A revolutionary procedure called Targeted Radiofrequency Ablation (t-RFA) is providing patients with fast pain relief from metastatic spinal tumors. Unlike other systems available today, the STAR™ system was developed specifically for the palliative treatment of metastatic vertebral body lesions.
