Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS)

SCS is an innovative procedure that has yielded results for patients with pain in their back or limbs who have not found relief from any other treatments. In SCS, an electrical pulse is delivered directly to the spine, blocking certain neuron fibers’ access to the brain and consequently the brain’s ability to sense the previously perceived pain. Patients who qualify for this procedure report up to a 70% reduction in pain.
