Dr. Matthew Rupert First Tennessee Physician to Implant 16 Percutaneous Lead
first physician in Tennessee to perform an implantation of Boston Scientific's Infinion 16 Percutaneous Lead to provide pain management through spinal cord stimulation.
The Infinion in the only percutaneous lead with 16 contacts — twice the contacts of any other percutaneous lead available. The thin, wire-like leads are placed under the skin to provide stimulation to nerves associated with debilitating spine pain that also affect the back, neck, head, arms or legs. This stimulation confuses the nerves and prevents them from sending pain signals to the brain, according to the release.
