pain. Recipients of these implants have reported excessive electrical
shocks, burns, spinal-cord nerve damage, muscle weakness, paraplegia,
and other issues. Tens of thousands have lost their lives following implant
surgery. In fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) received
reports of over 1.7 million injuries and approximately 83,000 deaths related
to spinal cord stimulator implant devices since 2008.
