  • peripheral nerve and occipital nerve stimulation
  • intrathecal drug delivery systems for spasticity and spasm.

Indications include:

  • failed back surgery syndrome (with predominant radicular pain)
  • post-surgical pain
  • scar pain
  • post-herpetic neuralgia pain
  • phantom/stump pain
  • complex regional pain syndrome
  • migraine and cluster headache.

Guidance and referral form

We adhere to national guidance for neuromodulation including TA159 for Spinal Cord and Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation, and for occipital nerve stimulation for intractable chronic migraine we adhere to interventional procedures guidance (IPG) 452. Our local policy is incorporated into our practice in order to aid appropriate patient selection.
