Peripheral Nerve Stimulation
We use an implantable neuromodulation device to treat chronic peripheral nerve pain called, “StimRouter” by Bioness. The StimRouter system works by providing electrical impulses to a target area in the body. These impulses are intended to interrupt or change the pain signals, inducing the feeling of tingling or numbness (paresthesia), and possibly reducing or replacing the feeling of pain. This is a minimally invasive, long-term treatment option for chronic pain conditions relating to upper and lower limbs, entrapment syndromes, intercostal neuralgias, and other peripheral injuries or disease. After implantation of the leads the patient is given a handheld programmer to control the stimulation settings.
