Peripheral Nerve Stimulation

Minimally Invasive.

The Peripheral Nerve Stimulation (PNS) procedure offers several benefits:

  • Peripheral nerve stimulation effectively alleviates chronic pain by modulating pain signals traveling along peripheral nerves
  • Patients experience enhanced ability to perform daily activities and engage in physical therapy, resulting in improved functionality and quality of life
  • The procedure is minimally invasive, which leads to quicker recovery times and reduced risk of complications compared to traditional open surgery

Frequently Asked Questions

About Peripheral Nerve Stimulation (PNS)

Peripheral nerve stimulation is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the placement of small electrodes near peripheral nerves. These electrodes deliver electrical impulses to modulate pain signals, providing relief for chronic pain conditions.

Candidates for peripheral nerve stimulation are typically individuals who suffer from chronic pain that has not responded to conservative treatments like medications, physical therapy, or injections. Common conditions treated with PNS include neuropathic pain, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), and peripheral neuropathy.

During the procedure, small electrodes are implanted near the affected peripheral nerves under local anesthesia and sedation. The electrodes are connected to a small generator device, which is implanted under the skin. Once implanted, the generator delivers electrical impulses to the nerves, disrupting pain signals and providing relief.

Peripheral nerve stimulation offers several benefits, including significant pain relief, improved functionality, and enhanced quality of life. As a minimally invasive treatment, it involves shorter recovery times and reduced risk of complications compared to traditional open surgery. Additionally, PNS allows for targeted pain relief, minimizing the need for systemic medications and their associated side effects.

Spinal cord stimulation is covered by most health insurance plans including Medicare, Medicaid (varies by state), most workers’ compensation plans, and most commercial payers.
