The two most common implantable devices are spinal cord stimulators (SCS; also called dorsal column stimulators, neurostimulators, and neuromodulation) and implantable pain pumps (intrathecal pain pump). Spinal cord stimulators operate by using electrical signals to disrupt the transmission of pain messages from different parts of your body to your brain. Pain pumps allow for the administration of pain medication directly to the spinal cord. Below are some resources explaining these devices. Please note: information from several different device manufacturers are presented for eductional purposes. WE DO NOT ENDORSE ONE MANUFACTURER OVER ANOTHER. THIS IS LEFT UP TO YOUR PHYSICIAN.
