If you suffer from severe or chronic back pain, spinal cord stimulation (SCS) might be right for you. SCS has proven to be effective in reducing pain and helping people return to their normal routines. The procedure consists of a tiny pulse generator that is implanted into the back. This generator sends electrical signals to the spinal cord that interfere with normal pain signals. The result is a 50% or more decrease in your back pain, with few side effects.
Our Mercy surgeons are experts in this procedure and will examine your situation to see if SCS is right for you. At Mercy, we answer all your questions and concerns and make every effort to keep you comfortable and informed every step of the way. To achieve the best outcome with SCS, your Mercy surgeon will work closely with your primary care doctor and physical therapist to provide a comprehensive, and stress-free recovery.
