The neurostimulator interrupts pain signals that travel between your spinal cord and brain, which may help you take control of pain — and your future.
The device, similar to a pacemaker, is surgically implanted under the skin. It delivers mild electrical impulses along implanted wires to an area near your spine.
Sometime in the future, you may need an MRI† to diagnose an unrelated condition.
Approximately 82% of SCS-implanted patients will likely need at least one MRI within five years of implant.
The spinal cord stimulation system uses proprietary MRI technology, gving you the same full-body MRI† access as non-implanted patients — now and in the future.
Your pain therapy information, including your position diary, unique therapy settings and spine images, is stored on your device, so it’s with you wherever you go.
This gives you the freedom to travel or relocate, knowing that another physician can access your secure information directly from your device.
Every patient experience is unique. Not everyone who receives Medtronic neurostimulation therapy will experience the same results.
Under specific conditions. Talk to your doctor and refer to product labeling for full list of conditions.
