Spinal Cord Stimulation Treatment
Spinal cord stimulation is a procedure that uses an electric current to treat chronic pain. It involves implanting a pulse-generating device under the skin in the abdomen. The electric pulses generated by the implanted device serve to interfere with the nerve impulses that cause you to feel pain. Spinal cord stimulation is a minimally invasive treatment that is typically performed as an outpatient procedure using a local anesthetic and a sedative.
This type of therapy has been shown to be especially effective in treating certain types of chronic pain conditions including Failed Back Surgery Syndrome, Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome and lower back pain. The physicians from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are highly experienced in performing this advanced interventional procedure. Using spinal cord stimulation, we are able to help many patients with chronic pain find relief from their symptoms and an improved quality of life.
