Spinal cord stimulators (SCS) are implantable medical devices used to treat chronic pain of neurologic origin, such as sciatica, intractable back pain, and diabetic. The device generates an electric pulse near the spinal cord's dorsal surface, providing a parasthesia sensation that alters theperception of pain by the patient, and is typically used in conjunction with conventional medical management.

Editorial Reviews

"The field of spinal cord stimulation has expanded tremendously in the last few decades and there is a vast sea of knowledge out there. Surprisingly, up until now, there has been no book that presents this information in a concise and practical way. There may be a thousand articles, but nosingle source. This book is the answer. It is a must read..." --Doody's, a 5-star review!
