Spinal Cord Stimulation For Failed Back Surgery Patients

Spinal Cord Stimulation For Failed Back Surgery Patients

Have you or someone you love had back surgery, and then ended up with failed back surgery syndrome?

Failed back surgery syndrome is a term that’s used to describe patients who did not see any pain relief after having back surgery.

In these cases, there are other options patients can try. One of them is spinal cord stimulation.

What is spinal cord stimulation?

Spinal cord stimulation involves a doctor surgically implanting a device under your skin. The device sends a mild electric current to your spinal cord. When the device is turned on, it stimulates the nerves in the area where you’re feeling pain.

Unlike most surgeries, spinal cord stimulation therapy can be reversed if a person decides it is ineffective or he or she doesn’t want to do it anymore. The implant can be removed without any permanent alterations to your spine.

What are the advantages of spinal cord stimulation?
