Has anyone had the Stimwave spine stimulator installed?

In the fall I did talk to the Stimwave rep that is in my area (southwest Ontario) and to date they didn’t have anyone in my area signed on to deliver this system. The primary benefit is that the leads are placed through a needle so no big surgery as there is with the SCS units. The battery back is kept externally so it sounds like an interesting system. I can’t lay flat on my stomach to have the SCS inserted as my legs go into spasm in that position. The dr won’t even try it for me due to this. In talking to them I thought this could work for me as I only need to lay flat for 10-15 minutes. My pain dr is checking it out since it is new to Ontario. They have several drs in another Canadian province of Quebec and it is working well. I am trying the RFA next as my pain is very severe and not much helps me with the pain.

Hello marychapman, what part of your body is the pain? i.e, lower back, legs, feet. Have you since tried the RFA? Thanks
