- Abbott has launched the IonicRF Generator, which is used to deliver a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment for the management of pain in the nervous system
- Radiofrequency ablation uses an electric current to heat up a small area of nerve tissue to stop it from sending pain signals. Studies showed that pain relief following a single radiofrequency ablation treatment can last from 6-12mos.
- The IonicRF generator is the first Abbott-developed radiofrequency ablation device that uses heat to target specific nerves & block pain signals from reaching the brain, currently approved in the US & EU
