The purpose

This study evaluates invasive deep brain stimulation (DBS) in the treatment of three types of chronic neuropathic pain, i) Post Stroke pain syndrome ii) Phantom Limb pain and iii) Spinal Cord Injury Pain. Participants will be implanted with recording / stimulation electrodes in pain-related circuits of the brain. Relief of pain symptoms with stimulation will be studied in both groups. It is hypothesized that neural signals will correlate with pain states and that DBS can disrupt these pain states in both groups, perhaps with differences in underlying neural mechanisms for pain relief.

Provided treatments
