IPSC Hospital: Advanvced centre for Spinal Cord Stimulators and Implantable Neuromodulation devices for Chronic Pain, Neuropathic Pain, and Failed Back Surgery:

A spinal cord stimulator is a medical device that is implanted under the skin to deliver electrical impulses to the spinal cord. These impulses help to block pain signals from reaching the brain. Spinal cord stimulators can be used to treat a variety of pain conditions, including: Chronic back pain Chronic neck pain Chronic leg pain Neuropathic pain Failed back surgery syndrome A spinal cord stimulator consists of two main parts: a generator and one or more leads. The generator is a small, battery-powered device that is implanted under the skin, usually near the abdomen or buttocks. The leads are thin wires that are inserted through the skin and into the epidural space, which is the space between the spinal cord and the vertebrae. The generator sends electrical impulses to the leads, which then deliver the impulses to the spinal cord. The impulses help to block pain signals from reaching the brain. Patients can use a remote control to adjust the intensity and frequency of the stimulation. Spinal cord stimulators offer a number of benefits for patients with chronic pain, including: Long-term pain relief Improved quality of life Reduced need for pain medication Fewer side effects than pain medications Minimally invasive surgery Reversible procedure Spinal cord stimulators are a good option for patients with chronic pain who have not responded to other treatments, such as physical therapy, medication, and injections. Spinal cord stimulators are also a good option for patients who have failed back surgery. Most patients recover from spinal cord stimulator implantation within a few days. However, it is important to avoid strenuous activity for several weeks. Patients will need to follow up with their doctor regularly to adjust the stimulation settings and monitor their progress.
