I really like the fact that this doctor takes the time to sit and listen to my pain and discomfort issues. My pain changes a lot with my back problem and he knows exactly what injection I need as soon as I tell him where my pain is. After his pain injections I am pain free for months, sometimes a year, and that is what keeps me from having the major surgery they want to have! Five years he has kept me going! Anytime I call the office they get me in right away and the office staff has been just as wonderful as the Doc! Great team!Kris
What are Spinal Cord Stimulators?
Spinal cord stimulators are a minimally invasive solution where a small device is surgically placed under your skin. It delivers mild electrical stimulation to the nerves along the spinal cord in order to minimize the sensation of pain messages to the brain.
Benefits of Spinal Cord Stimulators
There are many benefits of spinal cord stimulation therapy. Those include:
- Minimally invasive procedure
- Adjustable pain relief
- Targeted pain relief
- Little to no side effects
- Drug free solution

Spinal cord stimulators have been used for years and are usually recommended for patients whose back or neck pain has not been relieved by back surgery or neck surgery. Other conditions that usually benefit from spinal cord stimulators are:
- Failed back surgery
