    You can contact Medtronic for a referral to a physician who does this procedure, as well as one who can do programming and refills, in your area. You will most likely need a referral to these physicians from your primary care physician.

    I would go with a psychiatrist who specializes in pain management over a neurologist. They are way more in touch with SCIs.
