Chronic Pain Management
Move more patients from pain to relief
A large and costly problem, chronic pain affects approximately 1.5 billion people worldwide—more than heart disease, cancer and diabetes combined.1 That is why Abbott invests in the development of new therapy options and patient-centric system features that we believe will lead to an improved quality of life for more patients.
Whether your patients experience precise or pervasive* pain, our advanced approach to neuromodulation, with two superior and proven therapies, gives you the opportunity to provide better relief.**,2-4 Our proprietary dorsal root ganglion (DRG) therapy targets certain intractable focal pain of the lower limbs caused by CRPS,2 while our spinal cord stimulation (SCS) therapy, with revolutionary BurstDR™ stimulation,*** helps relieve pain felt broadly in the back, arms and/or legs. With Abbott, you can maximize patient outcomes by tailoring relief—because all pain is not equal.
Additionally, our radiofrequency ablation portfolio provides a minimally invasive alternative to back pain management.
