ABSTRACT

The most common symptom leading to a doctors clinic is pain and Pain is the most common symptom that makes any patients to seek medical advice and assistance. Grading pain and failure to respond to conventinal and non convential drugs leads to Neurosurgical intervention for the relief of pain which is indicated when primary intervention for the disease in question does not lead to adequate comfort. Surgical procedures to reduce pain are grouped broadly into two categories: neuroablative and neuroaugmentative. Taking account of the Neuroanatomy, Ablative procedures can be done anywhere along this pathway. Neuroaugmentation refers to the use of chronic infusion of opioid agonists or stimulation, which is believed to activate intrinsic modulating systems that reduce or alter sensory input.
