If you are suffering from chronic pain and have not found a therapy that works well, it may be time to see a Pain Management Specialist about Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS). Pain management specialists focus on treating pain patients with various treatment options tailored to the needs of each individual. A pain specialist can provide more specific pain treatments than General Physicians.
If you are a candidate for SCS, your pain specialist may:
- Need to receive authorization from your insurance provider to perform the procedure.
- Order a psychological assessment to make sure you will be able to live with SCS successfully—insurance carriers often require these assessments.
- Schedule a Test Drive procedure, or trial, to determine if SCS will help to control your pain.
We encourage you to explore this website to gain a better understanding of the potential benefits and risks of SCS therapy. As pain specialists, we are here to help relieve your pain.
