Spinal neurotransmitter implants?
My husband is having a neurotransmitter implanted into his spinal column. I did not go with him to his doctors appointment and he did not ask many questions. I do know that this is done in two stages , first the wires are inserted into the spinal column, and about 10 days later the transmitter is implanted around the hip area. My nephew had this done 6 years ago and had 10 inch incission along his spinal column and a 6 inch incission on his hip. I would think that this method has improved since then. Anyone had one of know of someone that has. Also the doctor did mention that it would be done under general anesthesia as he does not want his patients to move.

A neurotransmitter is a chemical in the brain like seratonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine, to name a few. What, on earth, are you talking about? You don't implant a neurotransmitter... that's utterly ridiculous. BTW, it's incision... not "incission".

i had this done but just the trial, it did not work for me. i was not "cut" open for the wires. i have a friend that goes in yearly to get the batteries changed. i was awake, and had to lay still for at least an hour for the wires to be implanted". it's time consuming and annoying because you have to lay still...would have been great if it worked i can't say what they did, but like i said i only had the wires done with the transmitter i worked manually. that is what your husband will get first to see if it works. good luck

I am having a spinal neurotransmitter implant procedure done at the end of the month. There are some web sites that show what is done but really do not explain it. Each doctor is different. Mine is not going to knock me out completely, I will be given a local and some "happy juice" as I call it via IV. The incision are not quite as invasive as they were years ago as the technique has much improved. The most likely scenario is that you will have the wires put in with a battery pack that you control, once your settings are determined, then a permanent transmitter will be implanted about 10 days later with a battery pack. It is not a cure all for the pain, it could reduce it by 50%, but then again it may not work at all.
For those that say there is not such thing, please have your facts right before you accuse the asker of not knowing what they are talking about. And as for a mistyped word, well ya know the saying "no body's perfect", well that apparently includes you to.
