Pain Conditions Treated by the Vega Procedure

Implantable neurostimulation therapies for chronic pain control, including the Vega Procedure, have been treating various intractable chronic pain conditions for over 50 years. Success has been documented during this period by the thousands of patient success stories, as well as by the hundreds of published, peer-reviewed medical research articles.

Basically, if a patient has chronic pain that has proven unresponsive to standard treatments over most any part of the body, then they should consider evaluation for a Spinal Cord Stimulator, Vega Procedure, or another implantable neurostimulator. Most commonly used for chronic back pain, they have also been documented successful for chronic migraine headaches, nerve injuries, painful diabetic neuropathy, and complex regional pain syndrome (RSD). Numerous research articles on each of the painful maladies listed below are available.
