We report a case of using a spinal cord stimulator for the treatment of severe chronic intractable abdominal pain associated with chronic pancreatitis and placement of intraabdominal stents. This patient also had concurrent severe chronic intractable cervicalgia with upper extremity radiculopathy secondary to failed back syndrome. The patient attempted and failed medical and interventional therapy for the treatment of her pains. Percutaneous 8 contact leads were placed midline at the level of C3-C6 and T5- T6 with excellent results. This case demonstrates that chronic pancreatitis can be successfully treated with spinal cord stimulation.
