Spinal Cord Stimulators

Spinal Cord Stimulator patients are typically suffering with pain after spine surgery, spinal stenosis or nerve related pain. Spinal cord stimulation is used to treat low back and leg pain unresponsive to other therapies. Spinal cord stimulation can be used to treat neck and arm pain in selected patients. First, patients are offered a trial of spinal cord stimulation. For the trial, a small electrode is placed in the epidural space under x-ray guidance. The electrode is connected to an external patient-controlled hand-held device that controls the electrical stimulation delivered through the spinal electrode. The trial usually last 3-5 days. If the electrical stimulation provides significant relief of pain during the trial, the patient will be offered a permanent spinal cord stimulator device. The permanent device is surgically implanted and completely hidden underneath the skin similar to a pacemaker.
