Medtronic spinal cord stimulation (SCS) offers a non-opioid, FDA approved alternative when other chronic pain treatments have failed, such as:
SCS disrupts the pain signals traveling between the spinal cord and the brain. Stimulation is delivered by a neurostimulator — a device similar to a pacemaker — implanted under the skin.
The impulses travel from the device to the spine over thin insulated wires called leads.
DTM™ SCS therapy is a proprietary therapy only proven on the Intellis™ system, with superior technology that supports multiple therapy options to meet the needs of individual patients.
A recent clinical study of DTM™ SCS demonstrated superior back pain relief compared to conventional stimulation at 3 months after a permanent implant (94 implanted patients)1. The study also showed:
