Spinal Cord Stimulator

Pain is controlled by gently stimulating the spinal cord through implanted electrodes. The small amount of electricity generated from the electrode competes with pain signals in the conducting nerves, much like large trucks (electrical impuses) jamming freeways, to keep small cars (pain impulses) from getting through fast.

Detailed information is available to those patients considered candidates for the procedure. Patient selection is the key to success for spinal cord stimulation.
