A discogram is a diagnostic procedure used to evaluate the discs in the spine. It is typically used to determine the cause of back pain or neck pain, and can help doctors develop a treatment plan for patients.
A special dye is injected into the spine’s discs during the procedure. The dye shows up on X-rays, allowing doctors to see the condition of the discs and identify any problems. The procedure may also include using a contrast dye, which helps highlight any abnormalities in the discs.
The procedure is typically performed in a hospital or outpatient setting and may be done under conscious sedation or local anesthesia. The patient will be asked to lie on an X-ray table, and the doctor will use fluoroscopy, a type of real-time X-ray, to guide the needle into the correct position. The patient may be asked to move into different positions or to perform specific movements to help the doctor assess the discs.
The procedure may be uncomfortable for some patients, as it involves injecting a needle into the spine’s discs. However, the discomfort is typically manageable and should not last for more than a few hours after the procedure.
Overall, a discogram is a useful diagnostic tool that can help doctors identify the source of back or neck pain and develop an appropriate treatment plan

A Dorsal Column Spinal Cord Stimulator (SCS) implant is a medical device that is used to manage chronic pain. The device is placed under the skin and consists of small electrodes that are attached to the spinal cord. The electrodes deliver electrical pulses to the spinal cord, which can help to block pain signals from reaching the brain.
SCS implants are typically used to treat chronic pain that is not responsive to other treatments, such as medications or physical therapy. They are commonly used to treat conditions such as chronic back pain, neck pain, and nerve pain.
The implant procedure is typically performed in a hospital or outpatient surgery center, and is done under local anesthesia. The surgeon will make a small incision in the patient’s back and place the electrodes on the spinal cord. The device is then connected to a small generator, which is placed under the skin in the patient’s abdomen or buttocks.
After the procedure, the patient will be able to control the device using a remote control. The electrical pulses can be adjusted to achieve the desired level of pain relief.
Overall, SCS implants are a safe and effective treatment option for many people with chronic pain. They can help to significantly reduce pain and improve the quality of life for those who are not responding to other treatments.
