His talk, “Advancing Pain Management with HF10 Therapy”, highlighted how his patients have benefited from this new treatment and how he feels it is superior to other stimulator options.
The meeting was attended by Central Florida PRC providers LaMisa Rayside, ARNP, Dayna Vecchione, ARNP and Daniel Prieto-Romero, ARNP, who found the lecture worthwhile and were interested in being able to offer this as a potential treatment for their patients. The attending Nevro representative, Brett Smith, was also present to answer additional questions.
According to one event attendee, “Dr. Ramos gave a spectacular overview of this product. We can all bring this out into the community and to our referring providers and be confident in the knowledge that Dr. Ramos presented.”

What is HF10 Therapy?
Nevro HF10® is a spinal cord stimulation (SCS) therapy that alleviates pain by way of electrical pulses delivered to small electrodes on leads placed near the spinal cord. The implanted device provides significant relief for both back and leg pain by modulating pain signals before they reach the brain, without producing the buzzing sensations associated with previous SCS technologies.
Patients find this minimally invasive treatment option to be particularly agreeable because it can be left on 24/7 and eliminates the need for addictive pain medications. Additionally, the device can be tested out as a trial prior to permanent implantation, and it is completely reversible.
Central PRC appreciates Dr. Ramos' dedication of time and expertise to helping expand awareness of this remarkable new treatment option for relief from chronic pain.
