At US Neuropathy Centers, we implement a wide assortment of procedures and techniques to relieve neuropathic symptoms for patients. In some cases, we now use implantable peripheral nerve stimulators.
Unlike spinal cord stimulation which require complex surgeries, these minimally invasive peripheral nerve stimulators have much less involvement for the patient, and usually patients are allowed to fully ambulate the same day as it is implanted. Each case is different, and it is important to understand that there are variances from patient to patient. If you have had a traumatic injury, we specialize in localization of the pain generator which allows us to use these stimulators in conjunction with traditional microsurgical nerve surgery techniques.
