Spinal cord stimulation
After a series of studies were recently published about the benefits of this new technology, the mainstream media has picked up the story. I think it does a very good job at presenting it in a realistic light. But, buyer beware, as it is not a miracle cure. Patients need to be presented the subtle nuances of such therapy. Make sure you understand how the technology works, what are its limitations and how it fits in with the rest of pain relieving modalities.
Oh, and Happy New Year to all our patients!!!
