This is the technique where electrodes are placed parallel to a peripheral nerve to help with pain. The idea is to replace the pain sensation with a more pleasant sensation and thus inhibition of pain long term. This type of device does not require an implanted generator but is rather a small key fob like device that can be worn on the body. This procedure can be performed under local anaesthesia, light sedation or general anaesthesia. This is a same day procedure. This particular device can help patients who are suffering from chronic postoperative pain (especially after shoulder or knee surgeries), occipital neuralgia, complex regional pain syndrome, chest pain after surgery or radiation, pain in the amputation stump, pain following inguinal hernia surgery and some selective conditions which lead to chronic back or neck pain.
