DTM™ Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) Therapy
The Differntial Target Multiplexed™ algorithm is the first SCS therapy intentionally developed from preclinical science. The DTM™ SCS therapy may engage a novel mechanism that modulates both neurons and glial cells, expanding the understanding of SCS mechanisms of action.
Superior Pain Relief. Proven Only on the Intellis™ INS. Twelve-month data show superior and sustained back pain relief with DTM™ SCS compared to conventional SCS.1
- 84% Back pain responder rate reported at 12 months (>50% improvement)
- 69% 7 out of 10 patients were profound back pain responders (≥80% pain relief)
- Sustained Back Relief with a mean VAS score less than 2 at 12 months

Medtronic supports patients by offering opportunities through our Therapy Awareness Programs (TAPs). TAP is designed to educate patients who could benefit from Medtronic products and therapies for targeted drug delivery and spinal cord stimulation.
Contact your Medtronic representative for more information on therapy awareness programs for patients.
This program is designed for prospective patients to obtain diagnosis-specific information from a volunteer who is already implanted with a Medtronic therapy. A prospective new patient calls or goes online, to schedule an appointment with an Ambassador. When meeting (via telephone), the Ambassador will tell his or her story of how the therapy has impacted his or her quality of life.
The Ask a Nurse Program provides prospective patients a resource to further learn about implantable therapies. Prospective patients ask clinical or procedural questions of a nurse* familiar with the trial, implant, and living with the implantable therapy. A prospective patient calls or goes online to make an appointment with a nurse. When they meet (via telephone), the nurse will answer questions from the patient about what to anticipate for pre and post trial and implant phases.
* Nurses are paid Medtronic consultants
Therapy Awareness Programs (TAP) events are in-person, co-marketing events delivered in partnership with a qualified healthcare professional (HCP). TAP is designed to educate HCPs who are caring for patients who could benefit from Medtronic products and therapies for targeted drug delivery and spinal cord stimulation.
Contact your Medtronic representative for more information on therapy awareness programs for HCPs.
Our tailored and varied medical education offerings help Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) clinicians stay current and learn about new technologies and techniques. Leading-edge clinicians help their ASCs stay competitive and improve patient care.
For clinicians and Medtronic reps, COVID-19 has presented new challenges to in-person collaboration. The remote conferencing app has been made available for install on clinician programmer tablets to enable remote education and/or remote technical support. Talk to your Medtronic representative for more information.
