Lung solutions

Giving veterans the fighting chance they deserve

Lung cancer remains the number one cause of cancer deaths in the Unites States.1 And lung cancer rates among veterans are 25% higher than the general population.2 At Medtronic, we are dedicated to meaningful innovations to address unmet clinical needs, drive cost effectiveness, along with operational programmatic impact, ultimately reinventing the patient journey — from earlier identification, diagnosis, and enabling surgical treatment.

Chronic pain treatment

Providing relief for patients suffering from chronic pain.

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) for pain

Spinal cord stimulation is a proven, non-opioid, FDA-approved way to manage chronic pain. Medtronic SCS pain therapy is now approved to also help treat pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN). SCS works by disrupting the pain signals traveling between the spinal cord and the brain.

Bryan’s story — Air Force veteran

“When I learned about the stimulators and the fact that I could try it to see if it worked, that was very appealing to me. And I thought, ‘well, I wouldn’t buy a car unless I test drove it,’ so let’s test drive this stimulator, and see how it works."
