Spinal Cord Stimulation & Pumps

For patients who have experienced a spinal cord injury or who have multiple sclerosis, spasticity is a common condition. With Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience's experience in spinal cord stimulation, Jefferson Functional Neurosurgery and Neuroimplantation Center physicians now also implant pumps in the spinal cord.

Because medications for spasticity can be unreliable and difficult to absorb, this direct infusion is often a more stable means of controlling the condition.
