Nevro Corp. (NVRO ), a global medical device company that is providing innovative evidence-based solutions for the treatment of chronic pain, today reported financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017.
Third Quarter Financial Results
Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2017 was $82.3 million versus $60.9 million during the same period of the prior year, representing 35% growth as reported. U.S. revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2017 was $66.3 million, representing 40% growth as reported. International revenue was $16.0 million, representing growth of 12% in constant currency and 17% on an as-reported basis. The increase in revenue was primarily attributable to the continued adoption of the Senza system.

Operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2017 were $62.4 million compared to $43.6 million in the same period of the prior year, representing an increase of 43%.
