Spinal Cord Stimulation

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is a medical procedure that involves the use of a device to deliver electrical impulses to the spinal cord with the aim of modulating or interrupting pain signals before they reach the brain. This technique is primarily used to manage chronic pain conditions that have not responded well to other conservative treatments.


At Aster Hospitals we provide the highest quality of care and a transformative experience for all your healthcare needs. With our network of multi-speciality hospitals, specialised doctors, and world-class technology, we bring global standards of medical care to our patients.

Is spinal cord stimulation reversible?

Yes, spinal cord stimulation is reversible. The device can be turned off or removed if it does not provide effective pain relief, and adjustments can be made to the stimulation settings.

How long does the battery last in a spinal cord stimulation device?

The battery life of a spinal cord stimulation device is finite and typically lasts between 5 to 10 years, depending on usage. Battery replacement involves a minor surgical procedure.

What is the trial phase of spinal cord stimulation?

Before permanent implantation, a trial phase involves the temporary placement of a stimulator to assess its effectiveness. If the trial is successful in providing significant pain relief, a permanent device may be implanted.
