DRUG FREE PAIN MANAGEMENT
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.

How it works
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.
