A spinal cord stimulator (SCS), also known as a dorsal column stimulator, is an implantable medical device used to treat chronic neuropathic pain. Implanted into the spinal epidural space, this device sends mild electric current to the spinal cord, altering the body’s perception of pain. This device helps relieve pain from failed back surgery syndrome, complex regional pain syndrome, peripheral neuropathy, and many other debilitating conditions.
Our pain specialists at Allied Pain & Spine are highly trained and experienced in using this sophisticated technology to drastically and positively impact lives of patients who may alternatively have minimal additional treatment options for conquering their pain. To find out more, call to set up an SCS consultation with one of our physicians.
