I was reading another thread this morning when I ran across something that made me curious. The member was referencing their warranty for the BS SCS. They were indicating that they needed to purchase an extended warranty for their hand held device if they wanted to insure that they could get a replacement should the device fail in the future.
I have a Medtronic RestoreUltra Neurostimulator. The warranty on the IPG and leads is 1 year. I was unable to find any references to the external parts in the warranty. However, I did want to mention that my remote has died twice in the past 3 years and Medtronics replaced it each time free of charge. Both replacements were well beyond the 1 year mark.
If you have one of the other brands of SCS, what is your warranty and/or experience when something has gone wrong with your stimulator or external parts?
Just thought this would be nice information to know for those considering an SCS.
