Spinal Cord Stimulator

What is a Spinal Cord Stimulator?

If your chronic back or neck pain has not been alleviated with traditional pain relief methods, a spinal cord stimulator may be right for you. A spinal cord stimulator is a device that is surgically implanted beneath the skin which sends a mild electrical current to nerves around the spinal cord for pain relief. The device wearer controls the strength and timing of electrical stimulations via a hand held device.


Speak with a Pain Specialist


When you have tried all the pain relief options available and still are experiencing chronic symptoms, life can seem bleak. If you are curious whether a spinal cord stimulator may be right for you, speak with a pain specialist at the Florida Pain Relief Group to discuss your options. A physician will discuss your condition and medical history in order to find the best solution for your pain.

What to Expect

Are you scheduled for a spinal cord stimulator implantation? During this in-patient procedure you will be made comfortable by our caring and compassionate staff.

You will be administered anesthesia and the medical wires that deliver electrical stimulation will be inserted into the epidural space in your spinal cord. Next, a second incision will be made where your doctor will insert the neurostimulator. After insertion, the wires and neurostimulator will be connected. The entire procedure lasts 1 – 3 hours, and total recovery time is 6 – 8 weeks.
