What is it?

Spinal cord stimulation is a type of neuromodulation, which is a surgical procedure that implants electrodes in the body to change how the nervous system works. Spinal cord stimulation involves placing the electrodes on the spinal cord to control pain signals. It is a minimally invasive procedure, requiring a small incision over the targeted area.


Conditions it treats

If medications and other therapies fail to treat your pain symptoms, your doctor considers surgical options. You may also be a candidate for spinal cord stimulation if you experience:

  • Chronic pain in the neck, back, arms or legs

  • Failed back surgery syndrome

  • Complex regional pain syndrome
