Spinal cord stimulation
Dr. Aaron Hong discussed spinal cord stimulation and its evolving role as an effective treatment for refractory chronic neuropathic pain in " Spinal cord stimulation: a nonopioid alternative for chronic pain management," his latest article in the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ).
- Spinal cord stimulation masks pain signals through a transcutaneous implantable electric pulse generator.
- Spinal cord stimulation is safe, efficacious and cost-effective in chronic pain management of neuropathic pain conditions, including failed back surgery syndrome, chronic regional pain syndrome and chronic peripheral neuropathies.
- Newer spinal cord stimulation technologies are expanding clinical indications such as visceral and ischemic pain, with potential for further improved efficacy.
- Increased awareness of and access to spinal cord stimulation therapy may allow more Canadians to benefit from relief of intractable chronic pain and may reduce opioid consumption.
