What is an intrathecal morphine pump implant?

Implantation of intrathecal morphine pump implies an implantation of device that contains medications like morphine at high concentrations that are delivered through a catheter into the spinal canal at very small dosages and are very effective to block any kind of pain usually in the low back. This device is usually implanted or chosen for patients that are either too sick to have any major surgery for the back or have had two or three surgeries of the back and despite this still have severe chronic pain. Application of this pump will be able to take the patient off all medications by mouth or transdermals like narcotics and provide significant pain relief without sedation to the patient.
