Different treatments are available depending on the type, severity, and location of nerve damage. At BEST Health System, neuropathy is one of the many conditions we treat with expert care. Our chief of Surgery and Spine and Orthopaedic expert, Dr. Girton, works with neuropathy patients using a range of treatments.
We offer modern solutions for patients struggling with diabetic neuropathy. One option, 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 diabetic neuropathy patients to minimize the pain they experience as a result of their condition. For patients with leg pain, spinal cord stimulators can relieve 50% of the pain.
At BEST, we give patients a trial run 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
