A temporary system includes an external generator, leads and a patient controller. An implanted neurostimulation system includes a generator, leads and a patient controller (and if it is a rechargeable system, it also includes a charger). For the temporary procedure, only the leads are placed within the body. The leads are then connected to a temporary generator so you can receive stimulation. For the implant procedure, the generator and leads are placed within the body. Typically, the generator is placed in the upper buttock. After the implant procedure, you will receive a patient controller so you can adjust your therapy settings.
