MVH to Hold Talk on Spinal Cord Stimulation

Back and leg pain can be a potentially debilitating condition, especially when it is the result of a serious spinal injury. One method of treatment is spinal cord stimulation. Eric Nabors, a spinal surgeon with The Orthopedic Group, will host a free talk about spinal cord stimulation on Tuesday, Feb. 11, at 6 p.m. in the Anthony M. Lombardi Education Conference Center at Monongahela Valley Hospital.

Spinal cord stimulation is a medical treatment that involves the use of electrical signals from a small device, similar to a pacemaker, to block pain nerves of the spine to greatly reduce the sensation of pain.

Dr. Nabors will explain the purpose of spinal cord stimulation and thoroughly describe the procedure to implant the stimulation device. The session will include light refreshments and free parking. To register, visit the program registration page or call 724-258-1333.

The talk is part of Monongahela Valley Hospital's Innovations in Medicine series that features physician guest speakers providing medical information to the community.
