Spinal Cord Stimulation

Spinal cord stimulators have been used to manage pain problems for over 20 years.   There are multiple mechanisms believed to be involved in the pain relief provided by a spinal cord stimulator.

A spinal cord stimulator is placed in two stages: first, temporary spinal cord stimulator leads are placed and tried for a few days.  This stage lets you and your doctor know whether or not spinal cord stimulation might relieve your pain.  During the second stage, which probably occurs a few weeks later, a spinal cord stimulator is placed permanently.  This is an outpatient surgical procedure.
