The dorsal root ganglion is the cluster of nerves located at the dorsal root of the spinal cord. In the mid-2010s, devices to stimulate the dorsal root ganglion were developed as an additional tool for treating chronic pain. This is a type of neuromodulation, similar to spinal cord stimulation.

At the Weill Cornell Medicine Division of Pain Management, our team includes leading experts in neuromodulation and dorsal root ganglion stimulation.

With dorsal root ganglion stimulation, a non-rechargeable stimulation device is implanted over the dorsal root ganglion cluster of cells. The device can be adjusted to deliver the preferred amount of pain-relieving stimulation.

Advantages of Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation

Neuromodulation has been proven to be safe and effective for managing chronic pain. Despite being a new treatment option, dorsal root ganglion stimulation has also proven to provide pain relief.

The main advantages of dorsal root ganglion stimulation are:

  • The ability to treat areas that cannot be treated effectively with spinal cord stimulation, such as the hands, chest, knees, feet, abdomen, or groin
  • Can effectively treat pain associated with neuropathy, including diabetic neuropathy
  • The ability to deliver pain relief to a highly specific area
