Interventional pain management modalities are important treatment options to consider for diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN). As a primary care provider, you have to know when to refer your patient to a pain specialist for interventional modalities. In this video roundtable from Practical Pain Management, pain specialists discuss current interventional modalities that are used for DPN.
The following is discussed, among other treatments:
- sympathetic blocks
- neurostimulation (currently used in the European Union for vascular disease)
