Nevro Battery Nightmare

To:  Anyone Considering the Nevro Spinal Cord Stimulator

I could go on and on with my 2-1/2 year nightmare of a journey with the Nevro Spinal Cord Stimulator. 

I had it inserted 2-1/2 years ago.  In 6 months I had it removed due to the excruciating pain.  After the removal I have lost my balance and have had numerous falls.  The last two falls almost killed me...who says the next one won't?  This unit did considerable nerve damage that I will NEVER get back.

I hope this will help anyone who may be considering this surgery.  Please don't do it!



  • I have a Nevro and I'm finally getting a lot of my life back.  I was NOT properly treated for many years and now have permanent spinal cord damage.  My injury is at high cervical. I give a lot of credit to the functional neurosurgeon that I'm working with.
