SCS: Spinal Cord Stimulation / Changing Lives
October 29, 2015
Big Words, “Changing Lives”, but as this interview with Dr. Siddiqui shows some patients can see true life changing results. The medical world can appear to be an alphabet soup of letters and abbreviations. Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) is exactly what it sounds like. By surgically implanting a Stimulator (wire) beside the spinal Cord and then Stimulating it (with a very small electrical charge) we can block the pain message sent to the brain. “Essentially, it’s like a pacemaker for spinal cord,” says Dr. Meraj Siddiqui.
As for the results? James Pate, who was injured after falling on boulders in his pond says “I was amazed. I was just like, I couldn’t believe how much it helped the pain,…. It didn’t take the pain completely away, but it gave me enough relief to get back to my life,”. Mr. Pate is now back to driving and attending church. He has his mobility and lifestyle back. No more physical therapy.
