Pain pacemaker (spinal cord pacemaker)


If the pain does not disappear after the application of maximum treatment methods (including surgery and painkillers), a permanent reduction in pain can be achieved with the application of a pain pacemaker.

Which patients need a pain pacemaker?

1- In spinal cord injuries due to spinal fractures

2- In untreated or inappropriate post-operative hernias with ongoing pain

3- In neuropathic pain due to diabetes

4- In spinal cord damage and edema due to cancer patients

Treatment details

Treatment time: test stimulation 1-2 hours, Insertion 30 minutes

course of treatment

We place a sensitive electrode directly on the spine with a minimally invasive procedure. Under local anesthesia, we keep in constant contact with you and position the electrode on the right area. We also check the position of the electrodes by x-ray. Starting from the spinal cord, nerves transmit impulses (stimulus) to the brain, thus preventing the spread of pain. In general, impulses are generated from these electrodes by means of an impulse generator similar to a pacemaker. As a result, the pain disappears and you feel a slight tingling in the pain area.

However, in the method we use, there is no battery or cable under the skin. Thus, the patient does not experience any discomfort under the skin and there is no need for re-operation for the device whose battery is dead.
