About Spinal Cord Stimulation
By administering small electric pulses, spinal cord stimulation (SCS) works to alleviate pain within the spinal cord. In order to prevent pain signals from reaching the brain, the electrical pulses change the nerve activity. Spinal cord stimulation is an effective alternative to a more invasive surgical procedure and can help you receive optimal back pain relief. Our experienced team of pain management experts at Tricity Pain Associates performs this advanced procedure to give you the ability to live a more comfortable everyday life, especially if previous treatments have not been effective. Learn more about spinal cord stimulation by contacting our Kyle, TX location to schedule an initial consultation with one of our skilled physicians.
Before the placement of the implant, a trial period will be necessary in order to identify the best stimulator device for your specific condition and requirements. To start the procedure process, you will lie face down as live x-ray technology is utilized to lead the SCS device to the proper location. Next, the lead wire of the device is implanted through an incision along the spine and an additional incision will be created in the lower back to place the generator. The wire will then be attached to the generator, and a thorough test is conducted on the device before the incisions are closed.
