A spinal cord stimulator (SCS), also known as a dorsal column stimulator isa device that consists of stimulating electrodes, implanted in the epidural space and an electrical pulse generator, implanted in the gluteal region. SCS works on pain management therapy, where it does not eliminate the source of chronic pain; instead, they interfere with the transmission of pain signals to the brain, so the brain does not recognize (or has only limited recognition) of the pain. Spinal cord stimulator device shows positive, symptomatic, long-term effect in cases of sciatica, cervical radiculopathy, Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS), Reflex sympathetic dystrophy, Arachnoiditis and Peripheral Neuropathy. Spinal cord stimulation was approved by FDA in the US in 1989, to relieve pain from nerve damage in the trunk, arms, and legs, and currently accounts for about 70% of all neuromodulation treatments. As per the estimation by AANS’s, as many as 50,000 SCS are implanted every year globally, and is expected to increase in numbers significantly in order to manage chronic disease states as the population ages.
Spinal Cord Stimulator Market: Drivers and Restraints
The spinal cord stimulator market is vast and remains relatively untouched as SCS shows huge potential to treatchronic back pain. The global SCS market is expected to increase in the coming years due to factors such as rising geriatric population, increasing demand for minimally invasive surgeries and rise in ageing demographics. Factors such as unfavorable reimbursement situation, lack of trained professionals and high cost associated with therapy are expected to hinder the market growth.
