This session will discuss advances in the field of neuromodulation and their role in improving patient outcomes. Topics covered will include the role of SCS trials and their predictive values on outcomes and the role of parathesias in pain control. In addition, advances in closed-loop stimulation will be discussed.
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Identify the role of spinal cord stimulation trialing in patient selection.
- Discuss the role of closed-loop neurostimulation.
- Classify the types of pain effectively treated by neurostimulation.
- Describe advances in the field of neurostimulation.
