Spinal Cord Stimulator Permanent Placement

A spinal cord stimulator is a device which is surgically installed under the skin and sends a mild electric current to the spinal cord. The current is carried from a pulse generator to the nerve fibers in the spinal cord. This stimulates the nerves in the area where the patient feels pain. The electrical pulses modify the pain signal as it reaches the brain, masking the discomfort felt. The device is a permanent installation.
