Spinal Cord Stimulation

Show Hide

Spinal Cord Stimulation, or SCS, may offer hope for many of the estimated 100 million people who suffer from chronic pain. SCS sends electrical impulses that trigger nerve fibers along the spinal cord, masking the pain message traveling to the brain. When this happens, generally the painful sensation is replaced with a soothing, tingling sensation.

SCS may be prescribed for chronic intractable pain of the trunk and/or limbs, including unilateral or bilateral pain associated with the following: failed back surgery syndrome, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) Types I and II, intractable low back pain and leg pain. Many people with failed back surgeries have had success with the SCS. Thousands of patients with severe chronic painful conditions have received relief with spinal cord stimulation. Learn More

Radiofrequency Ablation for Pain Management

Show Hide

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a safe, proven means of interrupting pain signals, such as those coming from irritated facet joints in the spine, genicular nerves in the knee, and femoral and obturator nerves in the hip. Radiofrequency current is used to heat up a small volume of nerve tissue, thereby interrupting pain signals from that specific area. Radiofrequency Ablation is designed to provide long-lasting pain relief. Learn More
