Although spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is a safe procedure, equipment-related, biological and neurological complications have been observed in previous research, particularly case reports. No reports of new neuropathic pain in the absence of neurological deficit or positive MRI findings have been described. We detail three cases of new-onset radicular pain in the L5/S1 dermatome following insertion of SCS.
