HFX™ for Painful Diabetic Neuropathy

< Back to All

Not a drug. Just relief.

According to The World Health Organization, there are 422 million adults worldwide with diabetes, with a prevalence (8.5%) that has nearly doubled over four decades. As the prevalence of diabetes continues to rise, so does the number of people with complications like Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy. Chronically high blood sugar leads to numbness and sometimes pain in the feet or legs, and can have a significant impact on a person’s quality of life. The HFX™ Solution by Nevro is now the only spinal cord stimulation system approved by the FDA to manage shooting, burning, pins and needles pain associated with diabetic neuropathy.  

Current treatment options for PDN include over-the-counter medications, prescription medications, physical therapy, acupuncture, self-management techniques (such as changes to the diet and exercises regimes), and injections. For thousands of people, however, these traditional options are inadequate for long-term relief.

HFX spinal cord stimulation

Evidence shows that delivering mild electric pulses to the nerves interrupts pain signals to the brain, alleviating pain and improving quality of life. Spinal cord stimulation, or SCS, is a straightforward, well-established treatment for chronic pain that’s been used for over 30 years. SCS involves a minimally invasive implant procedure that lets you go home the very same day. Interventional Pain Doctors use HFX™ for PDN as an effective alternative to conventional medical management to treat painful diabetic neuropathy. HFX™ is a comprehensive solution that includes a Senza spinal cord stimulation system and support services for the treatment of chronic pain. HFX™ for PDN means that a patient has been implanted with a Senza System and programmed to include a frequency of 10 kHz. Approval claim is specific to 10 kHz stimulation.

Enjoy significant pain relief

Spinal cord stimulation is an established and safe pain relief solution that works by delivering mild electrical pulses to the nerves, interrupting the transmission of pain signals to the brain, thus reducing pain. 85% of people enjoy long-term pain relief. HFX™ isn’t addictive and doesn’t cause drowsiness like pain medications do. No conventional, low-frequency SCS treatment has thoroughly demonstrated such positive results in treating PDN patients as FDA approved HFX™.
