The use of spinal cord stimulator has been supported by the evidence-based studies at moderate level to control varying etiologies of pain. Infections are the most serious complications encountered in spinal cord stimulator implantation. The intent of this article is to present available studies and literature for surgical techniques to reduce the risks of postoperative wound infection for spinal cord implantation.
