Latest From Nevro Corp.
The Australian company secured $125m in financing to support commercialization of the Evoke SCS system for chronic pain beginning in late 2022. The US FDA approved Evoke SCS for chronic intractable pain of the trunk and/or limbs, the third major FDA approval of an SCS technology this year so far.
The FDA approved a diabetic peripheral neuropathy indication for Medtronic’s Intellis and Vanta spinal cord stimulators a few days after expanding the indication for Senza Nevro’s spinal cord stimulation system to include non-surgical refractory back pain.
UnitedHealthcare will provide coverage for Nevro’s HFX spinal cord stimulation therapy for the treatment of painful diabetic neuropathy beginning on 1 March. Analysts believe the decision bodes well for the company’s chances of securing coverage from other insurers.
The FDA recently approved Nevro’s Senza high-frequency spinal cord stimulation systems to treat pain caused by diabetic neuropathy. Now it plans to expand its proprietary HFX high-frequency treatment to more indications.
