Minimally Invasive Spinal Decompression
Providing Pain Relief for Spinal Conditions
Spinal Cord Stimulation (Boston Scientific)
Spinal cord stimulation (also called SCS) uses electrical impulses to relieve chronic pain of the back, arms and legs. It is believed that electrical pulses prevent pain signals from being received by the brain. SCS candidates include people who suffer from neuropathic pain and for whom conservative treatments have failed.
Superion® InterSpinous Spacer (Vertiflex)
This implant lifts and separates your vertebrae. It's used to treat lumbar spinal stenosis, which is a narrowing of the space around your spinal nerves in your lower back. The Superion® implant makes more room for these nerves, relieving painful compression.
