Neurostimulators and drug pumps are implantable therapies. It usually takes 3 hours or less to implant the device and may require a hospital stay.
If your current treatment isn’t providing enough pain relief, your doctor may recommend a neurostimulation or drug pump screening test (an opportunity to try the therapy without a permanent implant).
