    Spinal cord Stimulator questions

    Who implants the SCS? It seems I remember my NS saying I was not a candidate due to severe spinal cord damage and several surgeries. Would that make sense? Do they work for pain caused by the spinal cord?

    It is done by neurosurgeons, and is not the first route to try to manage spinal pain. As a matter of fact, it is towards the end of the roa.

    You need space to implant the time later, and if you have a lot of scar tissue, that may e
    Imitate you as a candidate. However, if you are serious about it, I would recommend t,hat you get a second opinion.
