THERAPY AREAS

SPINAL CORD STIMULATION (SCS)

Abbott’s SCS therapy delivers revolutionary BurstDR™ stimulation to help people living with chronic pain. The system includes a small device called an IPG that’s implanted in the body along with thin, insulated wires called leads. When the system is turned on, the generator sends mild electrical pulses through the leads to nerves along the spinal cord to reduce the level of pain patients feel.

DORSAL ROOT GANGLION STIMULATION (DRG)

DRG therapy treats patients with neuropathic focal chronic pain. It works by stimulating dorsal root ganglia (DRGs) —structures along the spinal column made up of densely populated sensory nerves that act like traffic lights, regulating signals and sensations that travel through nerve fivers along the spinal column to the brain. Stimulating these structures can reduce pain in specific locations in the body.

DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION (DBS)

DBS is commonly used to treat the symptoms of movement disorders like Parkinson's disease and Essential tremor. DBS systems are implanted devices, similar to pacemakers, delivering mild electrical pulses to modulate specific targets in the brain through a thin wire called a lead. Abbott now has a directional lead that allows for even greater control of the electrical field to stimulate targets and not cause side effects by stimulated untargeted, adjacent structures.
