Program Overview

Treatment options for Painful Diabetic Neuropathy have been limited in efficacy and adherence. In July, the FDA approved the only spinal cord stimulation (SCS) therapy with a specific indication for painful diabetic neuropathy (PDN). The HFX Solution, which uses 10 kHz Therapy, has been shown to provide an average 76% pain relief in the treatment of diabetic neuropathy. During this webinar we will:
-- Review the outcomes of the SENZA PDN RCT that compared optimized conventional medical management (CMM) for PDN to 10 kHz Therapy.
-- Show how the HFX Solution can provide significant and long-lasting pain relief, as well as improved neurologic response and quality of life.
-- Help identify appropriate PDN candidates in your practice and find out how to access this breakthrough treatment option for their pain.

Join us to learn how the HFX Solution could help your patients with diabetes.

CE credit is not available for this activity.
