Neuromodulation is the alteration (modulation) of nerve activity by delivering electrical or pharmaceutical agents directly to a target area in the nervous system. Neuromodulation devices and treatments are life changing. They affect every area of the body and treat nearly every disease or symptom from headaches to tremors to spinal cord damage to urinary incontinence. With such a broad therapeutic scope, and significant ongoing improvements in biotechnology, it is not surprising that neuromodulation is poised as a major growth industry for the next decade. Treatments with neuromodulation have been successful in chronic pain relief, deep brain stimulation (DBS) treatment for Parkinson disease, sacral nerve stimulation for pelvic disorders and incontinence, spinal cord stimulation for ischemic disorders (angina, peripheral vascular disease), etc. Neuromodulation will provide the first comprehensive, in depth reference to cover all aspects of the field including basic fundamentals of neuromodulation, bio-engineering considerations, and clinical uses. The book is edited by the leading authorities in neuromodulation in the contributing fields of bioengineering, functional electrical stimulation, pain, and functional neurosurgery.
