I have one of the following medical conditions. Is it still okay for me to have the RP?

While you should consult with the physician about the specifics of any medical condition, in general, yes, implanted stimulators have proven very successfully in patients with:

  • Diabetes
  • Any type of shunt, including “VP Shunt” or spinal fluid shunt
  • Have undergone repeated Lumbar Punctures (LPs)
  • Aneurysms
  • Pseudotumor Cerebri (Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus)
  • Seizures
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Nerve Damage
  • Had prior surgery on any nerves
  • Any type of arthritis, including Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Have another implanted stimulator, e.g., spinal cord stimulator
