Description
Spinal Cord Stimulation provides physicians with the knowledge to understand and implement up-to-date SCS techniques.
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 the perception of pain by the patient, and is typically used in conjunction with conventional medical management.

This is an excellent overview of percutaneous spinal cord stimulation, covering the topic from start to finish in a precise and logical way.
