MiniStim PNS Treatment in Houston (Cypress) and Houston (Memorial), TX
What is Peripheral Nerve Stimulation?
Peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS), is a pain relief technique that uses tiny electric currents to certain nerves, which blocks them from sending pain signals to the brain (neurostimulation).
What is MiniStim PNS?
The MiniStim PNS system is the most powerful wireless neurostimulator that is wearable, mobile, and controlled by the patient-to relieve their pain and allow them to continue what matters in their lives.
How Does MiniStim PNS Work?
MiniStim is FDA-Cleared technology that offers drug-free pain relief to patients wherever they are, whatever they are doing. The path to pain relief through Ministim PNS is as follows:
PROCEDURE: A micro-sized MiniStim PNS device (much smaller than other PNS) is implanted-near the affected nerve-with a 3mm minimal incision, using local anesthesia.
TRANSMITTER: The MiniStim device is controlled by a comfortable, wearable transmitter which the patient clips onto clothing. By simply pressing a button, the patient activates the MiniStim PNS device to deliver pain relief as needed: whenever and wherever they are.
The entire procedure is minimally invasive, lasting typically 5-10 minutes, with an implant lifespan of up to 10 years. There is no downtime, and the device can often be used immediately after the procedure.
What Conditions Can MiniStim PNS Help?
The MiniStim PNS is used to treat otherwise uncontrollable, chronic pain originating from a peripheral nerve(s). Your podiatrist may recommend using MiniStim PNS technology to relieve pain in conditions including:
- Peripheral Neuropathy
- Nerve Entrapment
- Morton’s Neuroma
- Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
- Dorsal cuneiform neuritis
- Sural neuritis
