What is an Intrathecal Drug Pump?

An intrathecal drug pump is a device which is battery-operated; it is used to deliver medication straight into the patient’s spinal canal. Intrathecal drug pump can be used to cure chronic spasticity or pain. It is even used to get relief for cancer-related pain. At Specialist Pain International Clinic in Singapore, you will find the best treatment to have relief from any sort of pain.

Our spinal canal has a good amount of cerebrospinal fluid or CSF, in which our nerves bathe. A small tube which is attached to a programmable reservoir is inserted; any kind of medications like painkillers can be directly and easily supplied to these nerves.
