Spinal Cord Stimulation

For patients who haven’t yet found satisfactory relief from pain in the back, arms or legs, Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) may be a viable long-term treatment. Through the use of mild electrical pulses, SCS is found to prevent pain signals from reaching the brain.

Following the successful one-week trial use of a temporary SC stimulator inserted via a simple outpatient procedure, the patient returns for permanent implantation of a SCS device that he or she will control with an external wireless programmer. Although local anesthesia is utilized during implantation of the trial stimulator, for maximal comfort, sedation or general anesthesia is used when the permanent stimulator is implanted.
