A spinal cord stimulator is a pain relief device implanted into the patient's back, sending electrical impulses to block nerve pain signals. The procedure involves a trial, where an electrode is placed in the epidural space and the patient provides feedback on pain relief. If successful, the spinal cord stimulator implant is performed as an outpatient procedure under IV sedation, with small incisions made for electrode placement and stimulator insertion.
This device treats chronic neck or back pain, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), neuropathy, and failed neck or back surgery, among other conditions. The success rate of a spinal cord stimulator increases with early implantation, and our specialists are experts in this field. To schedule an appointment, please contact our office
A spinal cord stimulator is a spine pain relief device. The stimulator is implanted into the patient’s back and sends electrical impulses that block nerve pain signals to the brain. A spinal cord stimulator procedure consists of two parts:
The patient returns home shortly after the procedure and monitors their pain levels for another week. Special instructions are given to ensure the electrodes and stimulator stay in position. Pain relief after the procedure is significant and sustained.
A spinal cord stimulator may be used to treat:
Receiving a diagnosis is the first step toward pain relief. Early implantation has proven to increase success rates. Our expert specialize in spinal cord stimulation.
