About this Book

Could neurostimulation be a management option for your patients?

Neurostimulation techniques present real management options for patients with a range of neurologic and psychiatric disorders, such as movement disorders, pain, and depression. They should be actively considered when conventional medical approaches have failed or are inappropriate. But for many clinicians, these new methods pose many questions. What are the available modalities? How do they work? Which patients might benefit from them? How do I explain the processes to patients? How do I monitor my patient's progress after implantation?

Neurostimulation: Principles and Practice provides a concise, easy-to-read fusion of the clinical applications of implanted neurostimulators. It demystifies selection and referral criteria, maximizing therapy, programming the implanted neuromodulators, monitoring progress, and troubleshooting problems associated with neurostimulation.

Neurostimulation: Principles and Practice covers the modalities available for your patients: 

  • Deep brain stimulation
  • Motor cortex stimulation
  • Vagus nerve stimulation
  • Spinal cord stimulation
  • Peripheral nerve stimulation 

Written by an international cast of experts, Neurostimulation: Principles and Practice sets the stage for you to provide real clinical benefit to your patients who might receive, or are already using, neurostimulators.
