Dr. Newton implants State of the Art Pain Managment Device
Murfreesboro Medical Clinic and SurgiCenter, an independently owned physician clinic with more than 20 different specialties, became the first practice in Tennessee to implant a next generation spinal cord stimulator called Precision Spectra™ designed to provide pain relief to a wide range of chronic pain patients. Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) may be prescribed for chronic intractable pain of the trunk and/or limbs, including unilateral or bilateral pain associated with failed back surgery syndrome, intractable low back pain and leg pain. Precision Spectra is the world’s first and only SCS device with 32 contacts and 32 dedicated power sources, which expands the level of coverage across the spinal cord and provides greater flexibility for physicians to treat chronic pain. The procedure was performed by Dr. William Newton, a board-certified physical medicine and pain management physician, at the Cool Springs Surgery Center located in Franklin.
