dermatologylouisville.com LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 1.19 61 Kentuckiana Pain Specialists Treats Chronic Pain With Targed Drug Delivery (TDD) Chronic pain is defined as persistent pain that lasts longer than six months. It is estimated that one in 10 adults suffers from chronic pain. It affects more adults than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. Chronic pain can be difficult to treat and many patients find oral opioids are their only source of relief. Unfortunately, oral opioids can cause unwanted side effects. Targeted Drug Delivery (TDD) offers patients an alternative solution to treat their chronic pain. TDD administers medication to the cerebral spinal fluid, bypassing the bloodstream and significantly reducing the potential for side effects by requiring a fraction of a typical oral dose. The continuous infusion of medication also prevents typical peaks and troughs of oral opioids. For help reducing your chronic pain and to learn more about TDD, call Dr. Ajith Nair, Kentuckiana Pain Specialists, (502) 995-4004, or visit kentuckianapainspecialists.com.
