Dr. Simon Thomson, MBBS, FRCA, FIPP, International Neuromodulation Society (INS) president from 2009 – June 2015 is a consultant in neuromodulation and pain management at Basildon and Thurrock University NHS Trust, as well as serving on the staff of Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge. He presented a talk about the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) technology assessment for spinal cord stimulation in England and Wales. The assessment concluded that spinal cord stimulation for neuropathic pain is clinically effective at an achievable cost, making it mandatory for all health bodies to commission it appropriately due to its demonstrated cost-effectiveness.
