On Tuesday, June 6, 2017 at 6:30 PM, we will be partnering with St. Jude Medical to host a spinal cord stimulation (SCS) patient educational event. The event will be held at our new Lyndhurst, NJ location and Metropolitan Pain Consultants’ own Dr. Shelly Sharma will be presenting the benefits of this medication-free modality.
SCS and BurstDR stimulation are minimally invasive treatment options for those that suffer from one of the following:
While pain relief is the primary goal of spinal cord stimulation, it also has the ability to increase activity levels, act as an anti-depressant, and help patients come down from pain relieving medications. Perhaps what is best about this pain free modality is that it is temporary and features very minimal side effects.
At the end of the event we are having an open house so guests can see our state of the art facility while enjoying light food and beverages.
