Neuromodulation Treatment

The London Clinic Centre for Neuromodulation is a dedicated private service offering a range of assessment and treatment options.

These include Deep Brain Stimulation and Spinal Cord Stimulation for the treatment of a variety of conditions including chronic pain and movement disorders.

The Centre is comprised of a specialist team of spinal surgeons, neurosurgeons, pain management consultants as well as psychologists, psychiatrists and occupational therapists that work within a focused multidisciplinary environment.

Deep Brain Stimulation

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is a procedure in which stimulating electrodes are placed into the deep structures of the brain. It is used to treat a variety of conditions caused by abnormal brain signals.

Conditions which can be treated by DBS range from movement disorders to epilepsy. During DBS, tiny wires are implanted into specific areas of the brain – these help provide electrical impulses to correct these abnormal signals, and to improve your symptoms.

About Deep Brain Stimulation

Spinal Cord Stimulation

Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) is a type of neuromodulation that effectively treats mixed pain conditions.

It involves placing an electrode in the spine that is then connected to a painless electrical signal generator. This method works to reduce pain by reducing pain signals before they reach the brain.

About Spinal Cord Stimulation

Vagus Nerve Stimulation

Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS) is a neuromodulation procedure which is used as a treatment option for drug-resistant epilepsy.

It involves the electrical stimulation of a number of different fibres of the vagus nerve to slow down the irregular brain activity that causes seizures.

About Vagus Nerve Stimulation

Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation

Dorsal Root Ganglion (DRG) Stimulation is used to treat chronic pain in areas that are harder to treat with spinal cord stimulation. It involves placing stimulation leads near to nerve bundles to change the messages they send, in order to relieve pain.

About Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation

Occipital Nerve Stimulation

Occipital Nerve Stimulation (ONS) is a neuromodulation therapy that treats conditions such as headache and craniofacial pain. Stimulation is done via an implantable device, which alters the activity of certain nerves to help treat pain.

About Occipital Nerve Stimulation

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive brain stimulation that uses magnetic fields to stimulate areas of the brain to treat conditions such as depression.

About Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

Peripheral Nerve Stimulation

Peripheral Nerve Stimulation (PNS) is a form of neuromodulation that targets nerves to treat chronic pain conditions.

It involves surgery to place a small electrical device next to one of the peripheral nerves, with the aim of treating the pain.

About Peripheral Nerve Stimulation

Sacral Nerve Stimulation

Sacral Nerve Stimulation (also known as Sacral Neuromodulation) is a minimally invasive technique used to treat severe faecal incontinence.
