Spinal Cord Stimulator Implant

A spinal cord stimulator implant is a device that is implanted in the body to help manage chronic pain. The device works by sending electrical impulses to the spinal cord to replace or alter pain signals before they reach the brain. The spinal cord stimulator helps lower pain levels by 50% to 70% reducing the need for pain medications. A spinal cord stimulator may be used to treat pain due to conditions such as sciatica, complex regional pain syndrome, failed back surgery syndrome, peripheral vascular disease and multiple sclerosis.
