HF10 Therapy - High Frequency Stimulation
Dr. Nandan Lad is now proud to now offer HF10 Therapy! This is a brand new treatment option shown in clinical studies to reduce back pain by 66.4% and leg pain by 69.5% at 12 months.
Do you have chronic low back and/or leg pain? Do you feel like you’ve tried everything and nothing has seemed to work? Did you try Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) only to have that fail as well?
The Senza delivers Nevro’s proprietary HF10 therapy to help control chronic pain of the trunk and lower extremities resulting from a variety of conditions, including failed spinal surgeries.
The implantable device, as the name implies, delivers high frequency electrical signals at 10kHz, considerably greater than other neurostimulators. This prevents the therapy from producing side effects such as paresthesias and does not limit patients from driving their cars. Moreover, patients can still receive MRI scans while wearing the implant, given certain precautions.
HF10 Therapy was approved by the FDA in 2015, however it has been available in the Europe and Australia since 2011. Before it’s release, patients were traveling to other continents to receive this amazing treatment.
From Surviving to Living Again
After decades of pain and a roller-coaster of failed surgeries, Nevro HF10 therapy delivers relief at last
For Gregory Fox, now 55, the back pain started more than 20 years ago. The cause was lumbar disc degeneration, but it was aggravated by stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal) and the years Fox spent on the road as a drummer and a bus driver.
Spinal fusion surgery in 1999 brought him relief for a time, but by 2013, he had started to lose sensation from the waist down. The spinal fusion had started to disintegrate, and his spine was shifting. The numbness worsened to the point where Fox was unable to get out of bed.
Patient Story - Getting back to living
David Lemaster, one of the first two patients to receive Nevro HF10 therapy in North Carolina. He endured chronic pain for eight years before the implant. Today, he says he’s pain free.
‘Exceptional’ relief, without side effects
Nevro’s HF10 therapy is a device implanted near the spine that delivers high-frequency electrical signals to quiet nerves that contribute to chronic pain. The surgeon places electrical leads at the specific nerves that are causing the patient’s chronic pain and implants a separate battery pack to provide electrical current. The device can be adjusted or turned off via a remote control.
