St. Jude Medical intends to acquire Spinal Modulation.
Here are five important observations:
1. Spinal Modulation is the developer of the Axium Neurostimulator System, which can be used in the stimulation of the dorsal root ganglion to provide pain relief.
2. Following the completion of the acquisition, St. Jude Medical will become the only medical device manufacturer to offer radiofrequency ablation, spinal cord stimulation and dorsal root ganglion stimulation therapy solutions for chronic pain.
