Healthy Living: Bluetooth Pain Control
Researchers at U.C. San Diego are coming to the rescue of people with terrible pain in one part of their body.
In Healthy Living, Courtney Hunter explains how.
In a randomized trial, 74% of patients reported meaningful pain relief compared to 53% who got standard dorsal column spinal cord stimulation.
The DRG stimulator is FDA approved.
The system costs around $25,000 but can be as much as $40,000, which can be covered by insurance.
