Spinal Cord Stimulators and Implants

San Antonio Spinal Cord Implants for Pain Relief

The spinal cord stimulation is another alternative for patients whose neck or back pain has not been relieved by surgery and other treatments. Unlike many other forms of pain treatment, spinal cord stimulation always involves a short trial that usually lasts for a week and conducted with a temporary stimulator to determine whether or not spinal cord stimulation will provide the patient with adequate pain relief.

How Does a Spinal Cord Simulator Work

A spinal cord simulator delivers mild electrical stimulation to the nerves along the spinal column, blocking or modifying nerve activity in order to check the pain sensation reaching the brain.

This procedure was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1989 to alleviate pain from nerve damage in the arms or legs. Also called neurostimulation, spinal cord simulators direct the electrical pulses to block the pain messages reaching the brain. The implanted device is placed near the spine and generates these pulses.

Who Can Perform this Procedure?

The following doctors who can perform spinal cord stimulation are:

  • Orthopedic spine surgeons
  • Pain specialists
  • Anesthesiologists
  • Physiatrists
  • Neurosurgeons
