An innovative intervention against chronic pain at the Legnano Hospital

Dr. Claudia Castiglioni and her team at the Pain Therapy Center have made a groundbreaking medical breakthrough in treating chronic pain. Using the innovative system “InceptivTM,” the team successfully implanted a spinal cord neurostimulator in a patient suffering from intractable low back pain for years.

The patient, who had tried various treatments without success, experienced over an 80% reduction in pain during the trial period with the neurostimulator. Dr. Castiglioni and her team ultimately decided to permanently implant the device, marking a significant improvement in the patient’s quality of life.

The Pain Therapy team is among the first in Italy, and the first in Lombardy, to offer the latest generation pacemaker with “Closed loop” technology to chronic pain patients. The InceptivTM system utilizes closed-loop technology to deliver personalized and constant therapy based on the patient’s neuronal response, effectively countering pain based on their movements and activities.

Dr. Castiglioni emphasizes the importance of not underestimating severe chronic pain in Italy and encourages patients with complex pain conditions to explore neuromodulation as a treatment option. With the introduction of the InceptivTM system, the team is confident that clinical results will continue to improve and provide much-needed relief to patients suffering from chronic pain.
