What is Spinal Cord Stimulation for Low Back Pain Relief?


Many patients have benefited from spinal cord stimulation and peripheral nerve field stimulation.


Spinal cord stimulation usually involves a short trial (lasting a week) conducted with a temporary stimulator to determine whether or not spinal cord stimulation will provide the patient with adequate pain relief. The spinal cord stimulator for the trial period is implanted in an outpatient visit, during which the patient's skin i numbed with a local anesthetic and leads are placed under the skin and attached to a small generator that the patient carries (much like a pager or cell phone).


Placement of a trial stimulator generally takes about 10 to 20 minutes, and the patient can go home soon after the leads have been inserted. Preset programs are used to emit electrical currents in a pattern designed to target the areas of pain. If the patient enjoys significant relief from pain during the trial, a complete system with a generator can then be implanted.


For the permanent system, a surgical procedure is required to place the generator in the upper buttock or abdomen. The entire procedure takes 1 to 1 ½ hours to complete, and is done on an outpatient basis (no overnight hospital stay is required). The generator and incisions are so small that patients can wear bathing suits, or participate in any other activities without inconvenience or interruption. Nothing is visible on the body, and there is nothing to carry.
