The Corda Pain Institute is a dedicated New Jersey center for spinal cord stimulation. We operate from multiple facilities throughout the state of New Jersey, and we help patients overcome back pain and more with our practiced techniques.
Spinal cord stimulation involves implanting an electrode(s) into the spinal column to interfere with the body’s pain signals. This results in decreasing the amount of pain that is felt. The device is most effective for leg or arm pain, but it may have some effect on neck or back pain as well.
The device itself involves placing a trial lead first. We place a spinal cord stimulator lead in the back or neck, with light sedation provided during the procedure. Once the lead is properly placed, it is taped to the back and tried out at home for about 4-5 days.
A successful trial is defined as achieving >50% relief of pain. If this level is achieved, then it can be implanted surgically at a later date. There are many excellent resources on the Internet (Medtronics, Boston Scientific, St. Jude Medical, and Nevro) for further information.
