WaveWriter Alpha™ SCS System

WaveWriter Alpha™ SCS System

On February 3, 2020, Dr. Suneil “Neil” Jolly became the first physician in Louisiana to implant a patient with the new Boston Scientific WaveWriter Alpha technology. Louisiana Pain Specialists, in conjunction with Crescent View Surgery Center, became the first facility to offer this new therapy that is aimed to provide immediate and long-lasting, non-opioid pain relief for patients living in chronic pain.

Dr. Suneil “Neil” Jolly is committed to improving the health and lives of his patients through compassion and diligence. He is always on the cutting edge of the latest innovative technologies including Radiofrequency Ablation, SI (Sacroiliac) Fusion, and Boston Scientific WaveWriter Alpha. Dr. Suneil “Neil” Jolly believes in providing non-opioid pain relief options for his patients and even started the S.A.F.E. initiative to help bring awareness to the opioid epidemic. The S.A.F.E. initiative is one component to battling the opioid epidemic. The S stands for safer prescribing which means limiting how opioids are prescribed. A is for alternative treatment options. This includes, but is not limited to, various alternatives to oral opioids such topical agents and creams. F stands for frequent monitoring. Learn more about the S.A.F.E. initiative – HERE.
