Top Washington D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia Orthopedic Surgeons Specializing in Spinal Cord Stimulation (Boston Scientific)

It is believed that electrical pulses prevent pain signals from being received by the brain. SCS candidates include people who suffer from neuropathic pain and for whom conservative treatments have failed.
