“Doctors perform world-first treatment for chronic pain, fitting an implant which could reduce reliance on painkillers and may help people with Parkinson’s disease”

“Doctors in Australia have carried out a pioneering procedure to treat chronic pain, fitting a permanent spinal cord implant which can record signals from the nervous system and adjust the strength of impulses sent to affected areas. The procedure has been hailed as a breakthrough for treatment of chronic pain and could help patients to avoid pain-killers, which can be extremely costly.”
