Spinal Cord Nerve Stimulation in Chino, CA

Spinal cord nerve stimulation is a procedure to help eliminate pain for patients who have not been able to find relief in more traditional ways. A small device is implanted near the spinal cord and delivers electrical impulses to block pain signals from traveling to the brain. Drs. David Lee and John Lee are proud to offer this innovative treatment to help patients with various conditions, such as complex regional pain syndrome, failed back surgery syndrome, or peripheral neuropathy. Spinal cord nerve stimulation can help boost your quality of life and help you regain functionality, reducing your need for pain medications. To learn more about spinal cord nerve stimulation and how it can help you, contact Wave Pain Specialists in Chino, CA today.

Prior to having your permanent spinal cord stimulator placed, you will need to undergo a trial period with a temporary device to determine if this treatment is right for you. The trial device will be placed under local or general anesthesia during an outpatient procedure. A hollow needle will be inserted into the space between the bone and the spinal cord. Electrical wires that are externally attached to the generator will then be inserted. You will go home and record any changes in your pain levels. If the trial period significantly decreases your pain, a permanent stimulator can be inserted. After your permanent device is placed, you can return home. Before discharging you, aftercare instructions will be given to ensure proper healing. You may need to come back to our practice for a follow-up appointment to have your sutures removed and to monitor your recovery. If needed, adjustments to the stimulator can be made at this time.

Dr. Lee is a lifesaver! I sustained 3 herniated disc's about 18 years ago from an auto accident where I was rear-ended by a drunk driver. Since that time, my pain level began to increase to an 8 or 9 (out of 10) on a daily basis. Living with pain is no joke and affected me physically and mentally. I tried physical therapy, over the counter meds, and holistic approaches that provided minimal relief for brief periods of time. After visiting 3 different doctors, all recommended surgery. A family member found Dr. Lee and in my first visit, he suggested epidural shots to help relieve my pain. He was thorough in his explanations, allowed me to watch the procedure, and educated me throughout the whole process. After my first shot, I felt a level 10 pain for about 3 days, and then it was gone! I was/have been pain free for over 6 months. I can exercise, concentrate, sleep, and feel happy again! He has helped me so much and I appreciate that we found an alternative that has been lifesaving compared to having invasive surgery. Thank you Dr. Lee. No words can capture the relief that you have provided me with!!

Went to a few pain clinics for my neck due to a basketball injury. This was the only place that actually helped me with my pain right away. Spoke to John and David Lee and both were very easy to talk to and attentive with my care, nothing felt rushed like other places.

I was treated for chronic neck pain and Dr. John Lee was incredibly compassionate and professional. It had been causing me significant pain in my daily life and so I felt I needed relief. He eventually recommended a treatment for me. I was glad we were able to find one that helped me so effectively. His office is also at a convenient location with plenty of parking (2nd floor of the Grandview Medical Plaza). Making an appointment was seamless and his staff was also friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend them!
