Are there any problems with travel, such as with scanners at airports?

No, there are absolutely no issues. The TSA screeners are very experienced in working with travelers who have implants (pacemakers, implanted stimulators, etc.). They are able to scan (or “hand wand”) for these without difficulty. Additionally, all patients have a card that they can carry identifying them as having an implanted neurostimulator; however, even without the card there is no problem at all with TSA screening.
