Dr. Esther Caballero-Manrique is an Anesthesiologist and certified pain medicine physician who brings her knowledge and advanced skill set to Interventional Spine of Vermont. Dr. Esther’s notable diagnosis and pain management skills help us to render patient-centered pain management treatments including radiofrequency ablation, botox injection and spinal cord stimulation.
Dr. Caballero-Manrique is board-certified in two specialties – Pain Medicine and Anesthesiology. After her training in Anesthesiology at the University of Vermont and sub-specialization in pain medicine, she practiced at the same university as an attending Anesthesiologist and pain specialist until she co-founded Interventional Spine of Vermont.

Spinal Cord Stimulation, Peripheral Nerve Stimulation, Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulators
Spinal Cord Stimulation is a treatment method for those with back pain, leg pain, peripheral neuropathy, and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). A spinal cord stimulator is surgically placed under the skin and sends a mild electrically current to your spinal cord to mask pain signals before they reach the brain.
Peripheral Nerve Stimulation is a treatment method for those with back pain, shoulder pain, hip pain, knee pain, extremity pain, and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). It is similar to spinal cord stimulation except the electrical currents are directed to the peripheral nerves that run from the spinal cord to the limbs and organs in your body, masking pain signals before they reach the brain.
Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation (DRG) is a treatment method for those with neuropathic conditions that include CRPS, pelvic pain, groin neuralgia, extremity pain, and other nerve pain involving isolated parts of the body. The DRG stimulator is similar to the spinal cord stimulator except it addresses your pain by acting on targeted DRG. Neurostimulation is a less invasive method than traditional back surgery or nerve destruction.
