ABBOT BURSTDR Spinal cord stimulator

Posted by jlor @jlor, May 25, 2019

Has anyone tried the ABBOTT BURSTDR spinal cord stimulator for neuropathy pain, this will be my last hope since nothing else has worked. I have neuropathy in right foot and leg only, nothing on left leg or arms.

Hi @jlor — You might consider posting your question in one of the following discussions where it might have more visibility with other members with neuropathy or chronic pain.

Have you seen the following article on the Abbott BurstDR device?

BurstDR Stimulation Technology Offers Pain Relief in “Microdoses” for SCS — Another study showed that BurstDR revitalized pain relief in those switched from other spinal cord stimulation devices.

Hi @jolenekellner53, I moved your message about the BurstDR spinal cord stimulation to this existing discussion. In addition to meeting @jlor here, I'd also like to bring @nighthawk50 and @pgjanes into this discussion as they were considering the BurstDR stimulator. Members are talking about a variety of stimulators in this discussion on Connect:
– HF 10 Spinal Cord Stimulation Device (Relieves back and leg pain) https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/hf-10-spinal-cord-stimulation-device-relieves-back-and-leg-pain/

You may also be interested in reading the various articles about stimulators written my Mayo experts in the Adult Pain Medicine blog here: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/page/adult-pain-medicine/

Did your doctor say why s/he is recommending this brand over another device? What are the differences?

We have looked into spinal stimulators from other companies to treat my wife's chronic nerve pain. After reviewing all of the positives and negatives we decided not to opt for this kind of treatment. However, I have spoke with a couple of people who got relief with stimulators. Do some research and ask the right questions in making your final decision and make sure that there was testing done for your particular never condition as usually these systems work (or were tested for) particular nerves.
