Spinal Cord Stimulation at Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Spinal Cord Stimulation at Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Spinal Cord Stimulation is appropriate for patients with chronic, intractable pain in their back, arms or legs who have not gotten better with other treatments. W. Porter McRoberts, MD, Interventional Spine and Pain Medicine Specialist, explains that spinal cord stimulation is performed when it is decided by the physician and patient that the pain is not going to improve, there is no surgical or other options to treat the pain. This procedure cloaks the pain in paresthesia (a pleasant, warm, tingling sensation; a type of numbness that hides the pain from your brain).

Holy Cross Hospital's Neuroscience Institute offers this procedure at our Interventional Spine and Pain Medicine office in Fort Lauderdale.
