In this week's episode of the Spine & Nerve podcast, Dr. Nicolas Karvelas and Dr. Brian Joves conclude our introduction to neuromodulation series by discussing peripheral nerve stimulation.
Peripheral nerve stimulation utilizes similar technology as is used in other realms of neuromodulation, with the main difference being the targeted structures. Peripheral nerve and peripheral field stimulation, as the names suggest, focus on sending signals to a specific nerve in the peripheral nervous system (ilioinguinal, lumbar medial branch, cluneal, etc) or in the vicinity of a focal chronic pain.
Listen in as the doctors discuss this exciting option for patients. They discuss some of the recent literature studying these devices, a couple of which are listed below.
