Quantitative Assessment of Painful Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy after High Frequency Spinal Cord Stimulation: (QUANT) HF10 Study Seeking volunteers with Type 2 Diabetes and painful peripheral neuropathy
Principal Investigator: Dr. Narayan Kissoon
The Mayo Clinic pain clinic in Rochester, MN is seeking volunteers with type 2 diabetes and painful lower extremity peripheral neuropathy. We are conducting research on the use of a spinal cord stimulator and whether it can improve nerve function. Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is already FDA approved for treatment of intractable neuropathic (nerve) pain related to diabetic peripheral neuropathy. A screening visit which would take about 1 hour is required to make sure you are eligible.
If you are eligible, it will take about 1 year to complete this research study. During this time, we will ask you to make 3 study visits to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN (1 initial visit, 1 visit at 6 months, and 1 visit at 12 months). In between the on-site visits you will be contacted via telephone to review your progress. Remuneration is offered after completion of the study at 6 months and again at 12 months.
