Hoboken, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/31/2016 -- The Spine & Sports Health Center is pleased to announce that they are now accepting patients interested in spinal cord stimulation (SCS) trial procedures to treat chronic leg and lower back pain. The medical practice accepts patients from all over the New York metropolitan area, has three office locations in Hudson County, New Jersey, and is led by pain and spine specialists Alex Visco, M.D. and Ron Ben-Meir, D.O.
SCS is designed to help block the brain's ability to sense pain coming from damaged or injured area of the spine. The procedure consists of placing a soft, thin wire and small stimulator device near the pain generating areas of the spine. The treatment is ideal for those who have experienced no benefit from injections or medications, or those who have found little relief after spine surgery. A key advantage of SCS is that patients undergo a brief trial, or test run, with a temporary wire and stimulator to determine long term SCS will provide sufficient pain relief. At The Spine & Sports Health Center, every non-surgical SCS trial procedure is performed in an outpatient setting by Dr. Ben-Meir.
The trial procedure lasts up to 30 minutes, and the patient should expect to receive a temporary wire and stimulator. After the procedure, the patient will be provided with a remote control device which can be used to adjust impulses generated by the stimulator. This will help the patient obtain maximum pain control. A follow up in the office will be scheduled three to four days later and the trial wire and simulator will be removed. If the patient reports good pain relief during the trial period, they may choose to receive the permanent stimulator and wire implant at a later date.
