Phantom Limb Research Study

Spinal Cord Stimulation Research Study

Spinal Cord StimulationThe physicians of the Institute for Limb Preservation have developed a research protocol to study the efficacy of spinal cord stimulation for phantom limb pain. The protocol requires the placement of a temporary stimulator for 3 weeks and analyzes the amputee's pain relief to varying levels of stimulation. The attempt is to provide an alternative to narcotic pain medications that an amputee might require.
