In most cases, your doctor and his or her staff should be your first point of contact, but Medtronic also offers ongoing support. The information below will help you determine whom to contact when you have questions.
Contact your doctor’s office if you have medical, medication, and therapy questions. Your doctor has access to your medical records and history and can best diagnose any change in symptoms. Also, ask your doctor how to reach the on-call doctor in case any medical concerns arise after hours or on weekends.
Call Medtronic Patient Services if you have questions about or problems with your neurostimulation device. As a medical device manufacturer, Medtronic can offer technical assistance. We are not able to comment on your medical condition.
