Spinal Cord Stimulation


Welcome to Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine, where we are dedicated to providing advanced and comprehensive pain management solutions tailored to your unique needs. If you are experiencing chronic pain that has not responded to traditional treatments, Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) may be the breakthrough you’ve been searching for.

What is Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS)?

Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) is an innovative medical procedure designed to alleviate chronic pain by modulating the transmission of pain signals to the brain. It involves the implantation of a small device that delivers electrical impulses to the spinal cord, effectively disrupting pain signals and providing relief to patients who have not found success with other treatments.


Why Choose Spinal Cord Stimulation at Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine?

  • Expertise: At Hassan Spine and Sports Medicine, our team, led by Dr. [Doctor’s Name], consists of experts in pain management and neuromodulation therapies. We bring years of experience and a commitment to delivering the highest quality of care to each patient.
  • Precise Diagnosis: Before recommending Spinal Cord Stimulation, we conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your medical history and perform diagnostic tests to pinpoint the source of your chronic pain. This individualized approach ensures that we target the problem with accuracy.
  • Effective Pain Relief: Spinal Cord Stimulation offers significant relief for patients suffering from a wide range of chronic pain conditions, including neuropathic pain, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS), and more. By disrupting pain signals, this procedure can alleviate discomfort and improve overall function and quality of life.
  • Minimally Invasive: SCS is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the implantation of a small device under the skin. This results in minimal disruption to surrounding tissues, less postoperative discomfort, shorter recovery times, and a reduced risk of complications compared to traditional open surgery.
  • Customized Therapy: The SCS device can be adjusted to meet your specific pain relief needs. You have control over the level and location of stimulation to maximize your comfort.

What to Expect During a Spinal Cord
Stimulation Procedure

  • Consultation: You’ll meet with our medical team for a comprehensive evaluation and to discuss your symptoms, medical history, and treatment goals.
  • Trial Period: Before the permanent device is implanted, you may undergo a temporary trial period where a temporary SCS device is placed. This allows you to assess the effectiveness of the therapy.
  • Implantation: If the trial period is successful, a permanent SCS device will be implanted under the skin, typically in the upper buttock or lower abdomen. Small leads are placed in the epidural space near the spinal cord.
  • Programming: The device is programmed to deliver electrical impulses to the spinal cord, and you will have control over the settings to customize your therapy.
  • Recovery: Following the procedure, you may experience some mild soreness or discomfort at the implant site, which typically subsides within a few days. You can usually resume your regular activities relatively quickly.
  • Follow-up: Our team will provide you with post-procedure care instructions and schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress, make any necessary adjustments to the device settings, and ensure your ongoing comfort and well-being.
