Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) safely intercepts pain signals as they travel up the spinal cord without altering normal senses, mental function, or motor function.
SCS is considered “minimally-invasive,” meaning it does not require a major surgery. The technology is FDA approved and has been advancing since the late 1960’s.
Hundreds of thousands of people worldwide have been treated with SCS.

How it Works
The stimulator consists of a small battery pack and thin wires, called leads.
These devices have been developed over decades, with hundreds of millions of dollars in R&D. This is not a TENS unit.
The device is placed under the skin in a same-day, outpatient procedure.
Every patient gets to “trial” a temporary stimulator for up to 1 week to see if it reduces pain and improves daily life.
The trial is a simple, outpatient procedure that takes about 30-minutes in the doctor’s office.
The stimulator interrupts pain signals before they reach the brain, reducing pain and improving function.
When you feel pain, it’s because nerves are sending pain signals to your brain. Spinal cord stimulation interrupts these pain signals so you don’t perceive them as pain. The goal of spinal cord stimulation is to:
Reduce pain by at least 50%
Improve mobility and allow daily activities
Reduce the need for pain medication
Allow patients to relax and sleep better
