    Flowonix Prometra pumps vs. Medtronics

    Hello everyone,
    I have to get my intrathecal pump replaced within the next few months as its battery will soon expire. When I last met with my PM Dr., she strongly suggested I have one of the Flowonix Prometra pumps implanted instead of a Medtronics pump as the Flowonix provides more accurate dosing. Was wondering if any pump users have used both pumps and if you saw any significant difference? Did you experience any problems with the Flowonix pump?

    Thanks in advance for any info you can provide!
