About Nerve Stimulation
Peripheral nerve field stimulation is an innovative procedure that uses mild electrical pulses to prevent pain signals from reaching the nerves. It is commonly used to treat small nerve fibers located in the subcutaneous tissue. Generally, it is reserved for men and women who are suffering from chronic nerve pain that developed as a result of a previous surgery, injury, or medical condition. Unlike other nerve stimulators, this particular procedure is applied directly to the nerves or area of concern. This treatment also involves the use of an external device so that patients can control the level of stimulation.

Nerve Stimulation Treatment
Before we place the implant and to ensure this long-term treatment is right for you, you will undergo a week-long testing period to decide if peripheral nerve field stimulation is the best option. With an advanced treatment, like peripheral nerve field stimulation, our goal is to help you feel more comfortable with your daily activities by alleviating your pain. After completing the trial, we will schedule an appointment to apply the stimulation device. During the procedure, we place electrical leads underneath your skin near the area that causes pain and connect them to an impulse generator. Once we have securely attached the generator to the subcutaneous tissue, patients can monitor the impulses with a handheld remote. Following the procedure, patients experience drastic improvement and tend to feel happy with the outcome.
