David’s Story

Discovering targeted drug delivery

"During the trial I felt great relief," says David." A total calming down of the severe pain. I still had some discomfort, but not the blinding electrical shock I was used to. I couldn't wait for the surgery!"

Return to Exercising

David experienced pain relief with targeted drug delivery and returned to exercising. "My average pain score is a 3 out of 10. I go to the gym daily and work out for an hour and a half," David says.

Living a Full Life

Best of all, David and his wife were able to realize their dream of adopting two children from Korea. "Because of the pump, I was able to interact with my children and to complete my career to retirement. It has given me a life," David says.
