Spinal Cord Stimulator Implant
Manage pain with a spinal cord stimulator implant.
If your chronic pain isn’t responding to conservative methods, a spinal cord stimulator implant may help you find relief and reduce the day-to-day medication you need.
A spinal cord stimulator implant is a device that uses electrical pulses to mask pain signals before they reach the brain.
These implants treat sciatica, chronic arm pain, problems resulting from surgery, inflammation of the nerves near the spine, and more. They help patients manage pain and decrease their use of opioids.
What to Expect from a Spinal Cord Stimulator Implant
First, your doctor will put a trial stimulator in place through a minimally invasive outpatient procedure. If you see improvement, a surgeon will insert a permanent spinal cord stimulator implant.
After receiving the permanent spinal cord stimulator implant, patients experience lasting relief from a variety of different causes of chronic pain.
