Medtronic spinal cord stimulator

From: mag312 - on 07/15/2010 1:55pm

Can anyone give me an idea of what the cost is. I will be responsible for 20% and would like to know if it's as low as $10,000 or is it $50-100,000?

Do you find this discussion helpful?

I have a medictronic spinal cord stimulator implanted 2007 at that time I was billed $68,000 for the stimulator alone. I will say the stimulator has been the best decision I every made my leg pain is down to about nothing only problem is they were never able to get the signals to go up my back. But, i was told when I had it adjusted this year the new models due. Good luck with your stimulator I know I am very please with the result it has given me.

I had one inserted back in Nov and including the cost of the hospital it was closer to $15K, the equipment was around $10k

mine was 7500 in 1996. I had it for 5 yrs. and then the stimulation became painful so they removedthe system.
