Getting a Neurostimulator or Drug Pump

Medtronic Chronic Pain Therapies

Managing chronic pain isn’t easy. That’s why more than 350,000 people worldwide have used the proven technology of our neurostimulators and drug pumps.1 One of the benefits of Medtronic Chronic Pain Therapies is that a trial (also known as a screening test) allows you to try the therapy before you commit to it.

Surgery: What to Expect

The surgery to implant a neurostimulator or drug pump takes approximately 1 to 3 hours and usually takes place in a hospital or surgery center.
