Occasionally, conservative treatments for diabetic neuropathy are ineffective or do not provide enough relief. If this is the case you may want to consider surgery. BEST Health System takes pride in its minimally invasive procedures. Our board-certified surgeons employ a less than one-inch incision to access the target area.
We offer a modern solution for patients struggling with diabetic neuropathy. 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 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.
