PNS - Peripheral Nerve Stimulation
Stimwave’s StimQ Peripheral Nerve Stimulator System (PNS) utilizes the same technology as the Freedom SCS System. A neurostimulator with electrodes and a receiver to utilize wireless RF power is placed near a peripheral nerve in your body, below the head, to treat your chronic pain. Fitting through a needle sized incision allows for placement with minimally invasive surgery, typically as an outpatient procedure.
Before the device is implanted permanently, there is typically a trial period to determine if the therapy is effective for your chronic pain. PNS is covered by most insurance plans. Consult with your doctor to learn more about Stimwave StimQ PNS.
