Revolutionary Neuropathy Treatment at HOPE: Elevating Your Quality of Life

Understanding Neuropathy

Neuropathy, also known as peripheral neuropathy, is a condition that affects the peripheral nerves, often causing pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hands and feet. It can result from various causes, including diabetes, chemotherapy, certain medications, and underlying medical conditions. Living with neuropathy can be challenging, as it can interfere with daily activities and reduce your overall quality of life.

The Hawthorne Oncology Pain Experts Approach

State-of-the-Art Diagnostics

Multimodal Treatment Options

We offer a wide range of innovative neuropathy treatment options to address the diverse needs of our patients. Our approach combines traditional and advanced therapies, ensuring that you receive the most effective care available. Some of our treatment modalities include:

  • Neurostimulation: Our neurostimulation techniques are designed to alleviate pain and improve nerve function, helping you regain sensation in affected areas. Neuromodulation therapy involves the use of electrical stimulation to modulate nerve activity. This technique involves the implantation of a device that sends electrical impulses to the spinal cord, effectively blocking pain signals from reaching the brain
  • Physical Therapy: Hawthorne Oncology Pain Experts work with skilled physical therapists in the community who can enhance your mobility, strength, and overall well-being. Exercise and physical therapy are critical in maintaining your function and slowing the progression of neuropathy symptoms and complications. 
  • Medication Management: We provide medication management strategies to control pain and manage the symptoms of neuropathy effectively. Treatments included anti-neuropathic medications (e.g, gabapentin, lyrica, Cymbalta, TCAs, etc.). 
  • Nutritional Guidance: Proper nutrition plays a crucial role in managing neuropathy. Our experts offer personalized nutritional guidance to support your healing process.

Chemo-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN)

Cancer patients suffer tremendously from their diagnosis of cancer, but they can also suffer from side effects caused by their treatments. Chemo-induced peripheral neuropathy is caused by direct damage to the nerves by chemo. The severity is dependent on the type of chemotherapy agent and its associated neurotoxicity profile (i.e., some chemo drugs are more likely to cause damage than others), cumulative dose, and duration of exposure. Symptoms generally improve with time, but anywhere from 30-40% continue to have chronic symptoms. 

Treatment Options 

Dr. Podgorski is also an expert in neuromodulation techniques for treating chemo-induced peripheral neuropathy, including spinal cord stimulation, peripheral nerve stimulation and dorsal root ganglion stimulation. Research in this field is ongoing, but the results thus far are promising and provide an alternative option should more conservative measures fail.
