Professional Advice - Advanced Pain Care - Spinal Cord Stimulation

Spinal Cord Stimulation

Neurostimulation therapy (spinal cord stimulation) may help relieve pain and restore comfort by blocking the pain signals to the brain. This therapy stimulates the area near the spinal cord with mild electrical impulses. Neurostimulation can be an effective alternative when other pain management therapies have not worked.

The neurostimulator is a small, surgically placed device that generates and delivers mild electrical impulses near the spinal cord area through one or more leads (a flexible insulated wire). The stimulation from these leads replaces pain with a mild, tingling sensation. Based on the pain needs, physicians have the ability to customize the pain relief stimulation.

Neurostimulation systems include a hand-held patient programmer that is used to easily change stimulation levels, similar to a remote control. This programmer allows the patient to easily adjust settings and to turn the system on or off.
Prior to receiving a neurostimulation system will be the opportunity to experience the therapy for a short time. After this screening test, your doctor will determine whether the patient is a good candidate for the therapy.

Unlike other surgery, neurostimulation therapy is completely reversible, meaning that at any time the doctor can turn off or completely remove the system.
