Spinal cord stimulation in complex pain patient groups

the talk explores evolution and management of chronic pain in select complex patient groups who gained significant benefit following implantation of spinal cord stimulators at our Neuromodulation centre.

It provides insight into the complexity of these patients, the mechanisms of chronic pain and role of neuromodulation (spinal cord simulators). It also explores the role of evidence based medicine in these patients and its impact on treatment modalities in the future.
