Post Amputation Pain

Discover how Hightower’s studies have led to treatment addressing post-amputation pain, improving the quality of life for amputees.


About Post Amputation Pain Research Study

Following amputation, many individuals experience chronic pain, a significant hurdle on the path to recovery. This persistent pain can be phantom (felt in the limb that is no longer there) or residual (pain in the remaining limb). It can disrupt sleep, limit mobility, and significantly decrease quality of life.

Hightower has conducted clinical trial for post-amputation pain to learn whether electrical nerve block via the Altius System is a safe and effective treatment for patients.
