Keep pain out of your way

The SPRINT® PNS System is a 60-day treatment intended to help you get back to the life you want. Doctors have used peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS) for more than 50 years. Until now it had required a permanent implant. The SPRINT System uses a tiny lead that is placed with a needle. No scalpel, incisions, stitches, or permanent implants are required.

Surgical procedures, especially orthopedic procedures such as total knee replacement, often result in a significant amount of pain. Most patients find that they need opioids to get them through the rehabilitation period following these procedures and many continue on these medications for months following surgery. Opioids are often a primary treatment option for pain, and they have significant side effects, including addiction, fatigure, confusion, constipation and respiratory depression, among others.

Discover the difference

Pain can be hard. You can’t sleep. You can’t work. You can’t even move without pain. But it doesn’t have to be this way. People with many kinds of pain have found relief with the SPRINT system — the kind of relief that brings dramatic changes to your quality of life.

How it works

The SPRINT PNS System sends mild electrical pulses directly to the nerves, which can reduce pain signals. It uses a pulse generator (stimulator) to deliver therapy through a very fine thread-like wire called the MicroLead™. No scalpel, incisions, stitches, or permanent implants are required. And you control the stimulation with a simple, hand-held remote.


The only FDA-cleared PNS system available that does not require incisions or a permanent implant.

Significant Pain Relief

Significant pain relief

74% of patients treated with SPRINT report ≥50% reduction in pain intensity or pain interference.(1,5,10-13,15,18,22,23,26)

Where it's used

The SPRINT PNS System is FDA-cleared for the treatment of chronic and acute pain in the back and extremities, including post-operative pain, such as knee replacement.

Unlike pain medications, invasive treatments, and permanent implants, the SPRINT® PNS System offers a drug-free, minimally invasive and reversible option to treat chronic and acute pain. As such, your physician may choose to use the SPRINT system quite early in your treatment process, potentially eliminating the need for opioids or other more costly or invasive pain management alternatives such as a permanently implanted neurostimulator, radiofrequency ablation (RF), or even surgery.

My pain level has remained where it was when it dropped during the treatment. I can get out. I sleep better. I’m able to live my life again.”
