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.

Tri City Pain Associates – Interventional Pain Management  is one of the pain centers in the city that patients can trust with their chronic pain woes. From
a hernia condition to San Antonio joint pain, our doctors will see to it that you get the right treatment for your medical pain.

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

What Our Patients are Saying

  • Julie Bailey

    Had a ruptured disc from a car accident this summer that I have been having issues with pain wise. Dr. Dar’s quick service for cortisone shots to help manage the pain has been a lifesaver! Highly recommend.

  • Cliff Fisher

    I am so appreciative of Dr. Dar and his staff. I can see how busy he is, but even so he still takes his time during my appointment to explain what he can do to help me with my lower back pain. Thank you Dr. Dar!

  • Trish Marcos

    Dr. Dar and his staff were very professional and genuinely cared about my comfort and pain management when I was suffering from awful back pain. I really appreciate what they did for me. I finally have my life back and am able to function because of them. Thank you so much Dr. Dar!

  • Art Cruz

    I was referred by Dr. Homero Rodriguez to come and see Dr. Urfan Dar. I used to be a U.S. paratrooper, and after I hurt myself my lower back pain was so terrible that I couldn’t sleep at night. Dr. Dar is so good that I’ve been coming to him since 2002 . Dr. Dar pays attention to me when I tell him where I am hurting, and then takes care of the pain. He’s the best.

  • Misty Wilson

    I struggled for years to find someone who could help me with my Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome pain. P.A. Watson actually listened to me and has been working diligently to ease my pain ever since. I would highly recommend you go see him!!!

  • Lisa Ortiz

    Dr Bengali is wonderful! I had my first C-sp epidural injection, he said it could take up to five days to feel relief. I was having a pain of 7 walking and after I woke up my pain went dramatically down to a 2. I had instant relief. I couldn’t believe it. I was so happy with his team and the results. Thanks Dr. Bengali!

  • Michael Philby

    I have always had a good experience with the doctors, PA’s, and staff in the office. Their caring attitude towards their patients stands out. Another doctor I go to recommended them to me, and I’m glad she did. I’ve had issues with previous pain management offices: lack of caring, feeling like just another patient, rude behavior, extremely long waiting periods to see the doctor, and issues getting prescriptions. I highly recommend Tri-City pain management for issues you may have with chronic pain.

  • Rudy Moncivaiz

    The whole staff is very nice & very friendly! They treat you really well and with respect, the atmosphere is great. Dr. Dar is great, thank you very much!

  • Jennifer Plotts

    I was initially referred to Dr.Tong and I have to say, I was nervous. Well Dr. Tong surprised me, he is the best! He his honest and caring. The girls in the front are friendly also. I will be telling everyone about him, and thank you for helping me.
