Spinal Cord Stimulation Trial

A spinal cord neurostimulator is an FDA-approved therapy that may be the right treatment option for you if your pain responds well to other prior forms of neuromodulation, such as nerve blocks. During this procedure, the physician will set up and attach the device to you. This entails injecting a needle into the epidural space to deliver temporary wires, also called leads, into the target level. The leads are then connected to the stimulator and held in place by adding sutures. The device itself is taped to the back and comes with a hand-held device to control the neurostimulator. This trial period typically lasts 5-7 days minimum, and a pain diary will be given to you to track the progress of your pain relief. If the trial is successful, you will move on to the implant phase.
