HOW IT WORKS
SPINAL CORD STIMULATION

POTENTIAL BENEFITS

  • Improved ability to participate in activities of daily living1,2
  • Effective for extremities, back, and/or leg pain relief1,2
  • The power to manage your own treatment

TAKE CONTROL
OF YOUR FUTURE

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.

PROTECT YOUR FUTURE
WITH ACCESS TO MRI

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.

SECURE DATA THAT
TRAVELS WITH YOU

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.
