Advanced Treatments

Avance Nerve Graft

Avance Nerve Graft – is an off-the-shelf processed human nerve allograft intended for the surgical repair of peripheral nerve discontinuities. Through a proprietary cleansing process for recovered human peripheral nerve tissue, the graft preserves the essential inherent structure of the ECM while cleansing away cellular and noncellular debris.

Avance Nerve Protector

Avance Nerve Protector – it is the only porcine submucosa extracellular (ECM) matrix surgical implant used to protect injured nerves and to reinforce nerve reconstruction while preventing soft tissue attachments. Designed to protect and isolate, the Axoguard multi-laminar ECM separates and protects the nerve from the surrounding tissues during the healing process. The patient’s own cells incorporate into the minimally processed extracellular matrix to remodel and form a tissue separating layer. Axoguard Nerve Protector is provided sterile and in a variety of sizes to meet the surgeon’s and anatomical needs.

Stim Router

Stim Router – targets the source of your pain symptoms without drugs or invasive surgery. StimRouter might be right for you if you are an adult with chronic pain of peripheral nerve origin, excluding pain in the craniofacial region. In Europe, StimRouter’s Platform Technology is also approved for treatment of overactive bladder and fecal incontinence in adults. StimRouter is not currently indicated for treatment of overactive bladder and fecal incontinence in the United States.

Phantom Pain

Phantom pain refers to the sensation of pain or discomfort that feels like it’s coming from a part of the body that’s no longer there. It commonly occurs after amputation, but can also occur after other types of surgery or injury that result in the loss of sensation or movement in a body part.
