Limitations: Pros are your pain significantly will be improved and life will be better because pain under better control. The procedure is also totally reversible. Limitations of the device include inability to obtain an MRI scan, which could be an issue if you have diseases requiring MRI scan. There is likelihood that future technology will include MRI compatible spinal cord stimulators.
