  • Overview

    Over one million amputees suffer from phantom limb pain, a debilitating condition made all the more complex to treat due to the root question "How do I treat pain arising from a limb that no longer exists?" But new understandings of the pathophysiology behind this disease have led to more meaningful interventions, enabling better counseling strategies for primary care physicians.

    Dr. Brian McDonough speaks with Dr. J. David Prologo, Assistant Professor of Radiology at Emory Healthcare and Director of Interventional Radiology Services at Emory Johns Creek Hospital. Dr. Prologo has helped pioneer research ushering in new treatment methods, such as cryoablation, for the treatment of phantom limb pain in amputees.
