Peripheral nerve stimulators

Posted by sparshall @sparshall, Tue, Jan 14 9:54pm

This is a long shot, but I’m looking for people who have used implanted peripheral nerve stimulators (PNS) to control nerve pain. They block the pain signal to the brain. Stimrouter and Stimwave are major brands. These are NOT the same thing as spinal cord stimulators, of which there are many brands. I’m about to have a Stimwave implanted to block intractable pelvic and leg nerve pain.

Hi, @sparshall – welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Thanks for the clarification of exactly what type of device you are (and are not) looking for input on. Confirming this discussion might be on a similar product as what you are referring to? https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/stimwave-user-here/
