Spinal Cord Stimulation System

The Precision Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) system is the smallest and first rechargeable SCS system available. The implantable system treats chronic pain by delivering tiny electrical signals to the spinal cord that mask pain signals as they travel to the brain, creating instead a tingling sensation called paresthesia. Spinal cord stimulation is prescribed for patients with chronic pain in the limbs, trunk, and back who have not received adequate pain relief from physical therapy, pain medications, prior surgeries or other methods.
