UnaSource Surgery Center offers advanced options for non-narcotic pain relief, and among them is the HF10 spinal stimulator.
UnaSource works with Nevro to provide the HF10 spinal stimulator, which revolutionizes chronic leg and back pain therapy.
The FDA-approved spinal stimulator is rooted in pain control and can help those who are suffering with pain killer addiction – all in a way that avoids the introduction of more addictive narcotics.
“In many cases, pain relief drugs are used to treat addiction, which is an unfortunate irony,” said Dr. Jad Khalil of UnaSource Surgery Center. “The HF10 Spinal Stimulator provides powerful leg and back pain relief without the use of additional drugs, which is a more positive path toward recovery.”
How the Nevro Spinal Stimulator Works
Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is a well-established pain treatment that has been used in the United States for more than 30 years.
Evidence shows that delivering mild electrical pulses to the nerves interrupts the transmission of pain signals to the brain, thus reducing pain. Spinal cord stimulation is based on the use of a small device to transmit these mild electrical pulses to the spinal cord.
During an outpatient, minimally invasive procedure, thin wires are placed into the spinal cord. They are then connected to a compact, battery powered pulse generator, which can be worn around the belt. The pulses calm the nerves and reduce pain signals to the brain.
HF10 is the only SCS treatment designated as superior by the FDA for getting the best results in both chronic back and leg pain. It is the most effective SCS solution, with the highest demonstrated success rate for chronic leg and back pain.
- HF10 has demonstrated significant relief for both back and leg pain.
- It can be left on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week because it calms the nerves while allowing you to feel everything you should.
- HF10 isn’t addictive and doesn’t cloud your thoughts or cause drowsiness or constipation like pain medications do.
- Some other spinal stimulators deliver a tingling sensation. HF10 does not.
Getting It Done
Speak to a UnaSource Surgery Center physician in Troy to find out if HF10 is right for you. Afterward, you can try out HF10 for one week. You and your UnaSource doctor can then assess its effectiveness before you schedule the implantation procedure.
Even people who have had back or leg surgery in the past may benefit from HF10. A study by Nevro showed that 8 out of 10 people experienced significant, lasting relief.
