Dr. Taher Saifullah, a Comprehensive Spine & pain Physician, performed a successful HF10 spinal cord stimulation trial. The patient suffered from Failed Back Surgery Syndrome and has been dealing with chronic pain for several years. The pain was so severe the patient couldn’t walk or stand for more than 5 mins. During the 7-day trial the patient reported 70% pain relief and he was able to increase his activity level well beyond his recent limits. He also reduced his opioid intake for a few days during the trial. Patient stated “ he hasn’t been able to cross his legs while sitting in a lot of years. I did it during the trial and didn’t realize I was doing it until my daughter pointed it out to me.”
The patient will be permanently implanted in the coming days and is looking forward to getting his life back!
