Spinal Cord Stimulators

Spinal Cord StimulatorsSpinal cord stimulators are used to treat chronic pain, typically for people who have failed back surgery syndrome, post laminectomy syndrome, severe nerve-related pain, numbness or chronic symptoms such as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS).

Treatment using spinal cord stimulators involves implanting a small pulse generator into the epidural space on the spine. The generator emits constant electrical pulses to the spinal cord, which interrupt the nerve impulses and prevent them from reaching the brain.
