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.
