A study to assess pain relief using spinal cord stimulation (SCS) with high dose (HD) stimulation parameters

CATEGORY

Chronic Pain for patients who need a spinal cord stimulation system to help manage chronic low back and leg pain.

PURPOSE

The purpose of this study is to evaluate if using the spinal cord stimulation (SCS) therapy using high dose (HD) stimulation parameters while targeting a specific anatomical location is effective in treating chronic low back and leg pain.

Information regarding safety and side effects that may occur will also be collected.


METHOD OF ADMINISTRATION

No medication given for this study. We are testing a device, the spinal cord stimulation system, to see if it helps to improve chronic pain. During the device trial, you will have two leads temporarily implanted in the epidural (area around the spinal cord) space in your back. The study doctor may program up to three specific programming groups to evaluate if you can get acceptable pain relief.
