A Global Leader in Meaningful, Industry-leading Solutions for Chronic Pain and Neurological Diseases
Pain relief made personal
Advancing Deep Brain Stimulation. Because Parkinson’s disease is progressive, it’s critical to provide therapy that evolves with the patient. The Vercise™ Primary Cell (PC) and Vercise Gevia™ Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Systems leverage the Vercise Cartesia™ Directional Lead to control the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease through highly personalized therapy. Eight individually controlled electrodes on each lead allow physicians to adjust the range, shape, position and direction of electrical stimulation, which can reduce unwanted side effects and be adapted for continued symptom relief as Parkinson’s disease progresses.
Personalizing Pain Therapy. Each patient experiences pain differently. That’s why we designed the Spectra WaveWriter™ Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) System to provide personalized, long-lasting pain relief. With the ability to provide multiple therapies in one device, patients and their physicians can easily find the therapy that works best for them.
Setting the Standard. The Vertiflex® Procedure (Superion® Indirect Decompression System) is a clinically proven, minimally invasive solution designed to deliver long-term relief for the pain associated with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS).
Leading Radiofrequency Ablation. We offer radiofrequency ablation (RFA) systems used by physicians to treat patients with chronic pain. RFA is a versatile outpatient procedure that is often used prior to SCS in the treatment continuum for chronic pain and has a more than 50-year track record of providing relief for patients with chronic pain. RFA is a minimally invasive, non-surgical, outpatient procedure that is often used prior to SCS in the treatment continuum for chronic pain and has a more than 50-year track record of providing relief for patients with chronic pain.
