Can someone please direct me to a thread that specifically addresses the current pros and cons between the different brands of Neurostimulators to the spine or if someone who recently did same in the past year or so could give me the benefit of their insight. I see individual threats about Medtronics, St Jude, Boston Scientific, Nevro but would like to see them compared in one place. Husband had lamnioplasty of the neck in July 2015 and has been left with debilitating pain that did not exist pre-surgery and has not responded to typical modalities. I have read the basic threads and am looking for more detailed information so that we know he is getting what is best for his condition. I don't know if doctors tend to only install one mftr so you may not get a true feel of what is better. I understand the difference between rechargeable and not. Perhaps, certain brands are smaller in comparison... have been around longer and more proven... TY for the insight. The doctor has also said if the spine does not work, the next option is the brain. Has anyone ever heard of that as well?
