Your Procedure

Dr. Taylor will schedule you for an outpatient procedure at Henry Community Health in New Castle to place the temporary components. See Try It Out First

The trial and permanent procedures are outpatient surgical procedures that involve placing a lead under the skin. With the permanent procedure, the generator is placed through a small incision under the skin. Effective immediately, you will notice some pain relief which will improve over time.

Dr. Taylor will give you detailed information about initial restrictions until you can resume full activity. As with the temporary implant you may need some short-term restrictions on the amount of bending, twisting and reaching you can do as this is the time that the healing is taking place around the leads.
