Spinal Cord Stimulation for Control of Pain

By Stephen Falowski MD

Abstract

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is an adjustable, non-destructive procedure which delivers therapeutic doses of electrical current to the spinal cord for the management of neuropathic pain. The most common indications include post-laminectomy (“failed back surgery”) syndrome, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), ischemic limb pain, and angina. Other reported applications include visceral/abdominal pain, cervical neuritis pain, spinal cord injury pain, post-herpetic neuralgia, and neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome
