Spinal Cord Stimulator: Your solution for chronic pain.
Our Pain Specialists are highly trained in diagnosing the root cause of your pain and will determine if you are a candidate for a Spinal Cord Stimulator or Neurostimulation.
You may be a candidate if you have:
- Failed Back Surgery Syndrome
- Chronic pain in the back, neck, arms, or legs that has lasted at least six months.
- Neuropathic pain (pain marked by burning, tingling, or numbness).
- Little or no relief from surgery or other treatment options, such as pain medications, nerve blocks, or physical therapy.
This is great news for many of our patients that feel like they have run out of options for pain relief and treatments. This highly effective procedure has given life back to thousands of people and provided a way for their pain to be managed by the touch of a button.

How Does a Spinal Cord Stimulator Implant Work?
Spinal Cord Stimulator Implants, referred to as Spinal Cord Stimulator or Neurostimulation, works by intercepting pain signals before they reach the brain. To do this, a small system is implanted within the body by our trained physicians and monitored for optimal results and relief.
This system, similar to a cardiac pacemaker, is used to replace pain with a different feeling which creates a new method for treating pain. Some people describe this feeling as a gentle massaging sensation or, in some cases, simply the absence of pain.
- Pain signals travel up the spinal cord to the brain.
- A generator sends pulses to a lead (a thin wire).
- The lead delivers these pulses to nerves along the spinal cord.
- The pulses block the pain signals before they reach the brain.
- The painful feeling is replaced with a more pleasant sensation.
