Background.  The treatment of chronic low back and leg pain remains a difficult medical challenge, particularly for patients with postlaminectomy syndrome. While spinal cord stimulation (SCS) has been a significant addition to the available options, it is often inadequate in relieving both the back and leg pain components. We hypothesized that for some patients the combination of SCS with peripheral nerve field stimulation (PNFS) would be a safe, effective alternative that would be more… CONTINUE READING
