Getting a Neurostimulator

Medtronic neurostimulators are helping more than 250,000 people worldwide manage pain. It usually takes 3 hours or less to implant the device.

Is it Right for You?

If your current treatment isn’t providing enough pain relief, your doctor may recommend a neurostimulation screening test (an opportunity to try the therapy without a permanent implant).

Surgery: What to Expect

The surgery to implant a neurostimulator takes approximately 1 to 3 hours and may require a hospital stay.
