HFXTM Solution for Painful Diabetic Neuropathy

Diabetes mellitus is one of the most widespread conditions in today’s world. It can be accompanied by painful peripheral neuropathy, which develops in around 50% of diabetic patients who have had the disease for over 25 years.

Nevro is a renowned medical device company that focuses on providing relief to people with chronic pain. Recently, their HFXTM technology received FDA approval for Painful Diabetic Neuropathy (PDN). Read on to learn all about it.

What Are the Symptoms of Painful Diabetic Neuropathy?

PDN can manifest in several different ways, including:

  • Burning sensation
  • Excruciating pain
  • Stabbing pain
  • Tingling
  • Numbness
  • Other

These symptoms mainly develop due to metabolic and vascular factors and can significantly affect the quality of life of people with diabetes. Their management includes strict glycemic control and medications. However, many people don’t respond to traditional treatments, so Nevro has developed a unique spinal cord stimulation (SCS) solution called HFXTM Solution to combat chronic pain.

What Is HFXTM Solution?

SCS is a well-established treatment for chronic pain, and it has been used for over 30 years. It works by implanting a small device that delivers mild electric impulses to the targeted area. These impulses affect nerves and interrupt the pain signals traveling to the brain, alleviating chronic pain and improving the quality of life of many patients.

HFXTM utilizes a Senza spinal cord stimulation system with 10 kHz TherapyTM that helps with PDN. Nevro reports that 85% of their patients using this therapy experience pain relief, while 76% achieve long-term pain relief after six months of using HFXTM.
In addition, using the HFXTM Solution has no side effects like drowsiness and brain fog, which is a common problem with PDN medication treatment.

HFXTM Implant Procedure

HFXTM requires minimally invasive surgery and the implantation of a small device under the skin above your beltline. It is connected to thin wires located near the spine to send those electric impulses that combat chronic pain. The procedure is relatively quick, and in most cases, you’ll be able to go home the same day.
Before the implantation, you will wear an HFXTM device for a week to determine whether it provides significant pain relief and improves your everyday life.
