Has anyone ever heard of any surgeons in the USA that will implant SCI patients? It?s just an off the shelf pain stimulator and the surgery is not complicated and can even be 30-60 mins outpatient. Obviously optimizing the settings could be the biggest challenge. I would think you could get it put in for pain in the eyes of insurance and who would dispute that we have this pain.

its become evident to me that some of the bigger researchers doing this do not seem to have much intention or motivation to take this to clinic to actually help us. I don?t want to and won?t go to Thailand but would love to find someone to do it in North America.

Just one benefit of anything even as minimal as better bladder capacity resulting less cathing and UTIs justify it. The implant itself is not even expensive.
