For nerve-related pain, advanced neuromodulation procedures available at Stanford, such as trigeminal stimulation or brain stimulation, can often provide relief when other treatments fail.
Trigeminal nerve stimulator: This procedure stimulates the trigeminal nerve directly to relive pain.
Motor cortex stimulator: Stanford is one of the few hospitals in the nation offering motor cortex stimulation for treating nerve-related pain. Our surgeons are not only experts in surgically placing implants in the brain, but also in reprogramming implants for patients who had initial pain relief that did not last.
Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.
Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
