Doctor Talk : Treating Chronic Pain with Spinal Cord Stimulation

Doctor Talks:

Treating Chronic Pain with Spinal Cord Stimulation

Speaker: Dr Tom Smith MBBS (Hons) MD FRCA FFPMRCA

Consultant in Pain Medicine, Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals

Audrey Emerton Building, Eastern Road, Brighton (opposite the Royal Sussex County Hospital)

Wednesday 18th April at 6:30pm

19% of people across Europe suffer with chronic pain - one third of these have severe pain. A holistic approach seeks to reduce the pain itself, whilst recognising psychological and social factors that inevitably intertwine with the pain to impair quality of life.

Pain medicines can be frustratingly ineffective in chronic pain. Spinal Cord Stimulation uses subtle modulating electrical impulses. For some people this therapy can be life changing. Dr Smith’s work includes clinical research at the cutting-edge of this field and he will explain this exciting therapy and its current indications.
