Dr. Sean Li of Premier Pain Centers, an affiliate of National Spine & Pain Centers, recently implanted Nevro‘s next-generation Senza II™ Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) System to deliver HF10™ therapy to a patient. This was the first-ever SENZA II HF10 Spinal Cord Stimulator implant in the country. The Senza II™ system offers the superior outcomes and clinical advantages of HF10™ therapy through a smaller and more refined footprint while maintaining the performance and durability of the current Implantable Pulse Generator (IPG).

More about the SENZA II system and HF10 therapy

The Senza II™ system delivers Nevro’s proprietary HF10™ therapy, an SCS therapy that provides electrical pulses to the spinal cord to alleviate pain. The electrical pulses are delivered by small electrodes on leads that are placed near the spinal cord and are connected to a compact, battery-powered generator implanted under the skin. HF10™ therapy is the only SCS therapy indicated to provide pain relief without paresthesia (a stimulation-induced sensation, such as tingling or buzzing, which is the basis of traditional SCS) and is also the first SCS therapy to demonstrate superiority to traditional SCS for back and leg pain in a comparative pivotal study. Nevro’s innovations in SCS, including the Senza® and Senza II™ systems and HF10™ therapy, are covered by more than 140 issued U.S. and international patents.
