Bay City Capital LLC, a life sciences investment firm, disclosed in a regulatory filing ( Form SC 13G ) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that it owns 2,217,214 shares of NVRO, representing an 8.9% stake in the company.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved this month NVRO's Senza spinal cord stimulation system as an aid in the management of chronic intractable pain of the trunk and/or limbs.

After the closing bell on Friday, NVRO said that the first commercial case has been performed in the United States of the Senza spinal cord stimulation system, which delivers the company's proprietary HF10 therapy, the only spinal cord stimulation therapy indicated by FDA to deliver pain relief without paresthesia (a constant tingling sensation that is the basis of traditional spinal cord stimulation therapy)

According to NVRO, the Senza system delivering its HF10 therapy has experienced strong adoption in Europe and Australia over the past 5 years. NVRO's revenue increased 45% year-over-year to $9.7 million in the first quarter 2015, increase primarily attributable to continued adoption of the Senza system.

NVRO is a medical device company focused on providing innovative products that improve the quality of life of patients suffering from debilitating chronic pain.
