Spinal Cord Stimulator Specialists in Chicagoland

Are You Ready For a New Sensation?

Patients struggling with chronic pain can finally see hope in the cutting-edge of technology: spinal cord stimulators. This minimally invasive procedure bypasses pain signals, providing relief not just through numbness, but by sending a tingling sensation that disrupts the pain pathway. Studies show 70% experience significant pain reduction, with potential benefits like improved sleep and even restored sensation. Though not a cure, it offers a life-changing alternative for those who haven’t found relief through traditional avenues. While there are risks and considerations, for many suffering with debilitating neuropathy or other chronic pain conditions, this technology opens a door to reclaiming a life less consumed by pain.

Are You a Candidate For a Spinal Cord Stimulator?

A spinal cord stimulator is a cutting-edge medical device that can reduce nerve pain. Through the use of new technology, low-level electrical signals move toward the spinal cord to modify pain signals and provide relief for chronic pain conditions.

We offer modern solutions for patients struggling with conditions stemming from a range of neuropathy types. Spinal cord stimulators, sometimes referred to as (SCS), deliver electrical pulses to the spinal cord. These pulses can then block pain signals from being sent to the brain. This allows painful diabetic neuropathy patients to minimize the pain they experience due to their condition. For patients with neck & back pain, spinal cord stimulators can relieve much of the pain.

At BEST, we offer patients diagnostic testing with the SCS device so they can determine whether it is the right option for them. If patients find relief with it, we can implant a permanent device.
