Spinal cord stimulator

• Neurostimulation uses a small implanted system to send precisely controlled mild electrical impulses to the    nervous system–Typically the dorsal horn in the Spinal Cord.

• The patient feels the Neurostimulation as a pleasant tingling sensation, also known as "paraesthesias"

• Neurostimulation is divided into subcategories based upon the type of nerve that is being stimulated.

–  Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) involves stimulation of the dorsal column of the spinal cord.
–  Peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) involves stimulation of a specific nerve branch. SCS is the more commonly     used technique for chronic pain management.
