A lead system is provided which integrates a first and second spinal cord leads with an inflatable lumen attached therebetween. The combined two lead system permits the leads to be placed in parallel to each other and fixes the two leads to prevent lead migration relatively to each other. The inflatable lumen is deflated during implantation and inflated once the lead system is implanted. The inflated lumen precisely spaces the distance between the first and second spinal cord leads.
