Epidural spinal cord stimulator (SCS) implantation is a well-established treatment for refractory neuropathic pain. 1 Depending on the pain region that needs to be covered, electrodes can be placed in the thoracic spine (lower back and/or lower extremity pain) or in the cervical spine (occiput, neck, and/or upper extremity pain). 2 Cervical SCS implantation is less commonly.

For severe symptoms, surgical decompression include laminotomy, laminectomy, endoscopic decompression, or other minimally invasive decompressive techniques. Interspinous process devices (IPD) have been developed to achieve indirect decompression by limiting lumbar extension of the abnormal joint and enlarging the spinal canal and neuroforamen Objectives: Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is a valid option for intractable neuropathic pain syndromes, yet some patients cannot undergo the standard awake procedure.

Most of these trials are performed in an outpatient ambulatory surgical center and some in the office setting Spinal cord stimulation is useful for pain in the back, arms, and legs. We often use it to help with failed back surgery syndrome (post-laminectomy syndrome), which can develop after spine surgery, and with complex regional pain syndrome, which happens when your body doesn't heal properly after an injury
