Jill Schweiger, Medovex’s Senior Vice President Regulatory, Clinical & Quality, stated, “Ed’s extensive background and experience make him a great quality addition to our team. We look forward to his help and leadership in the Quality arena as we push ahead towards anticipated CE Marking and ultimate market release of the DenerveX™ System.”
Patrick Kullmann, Medovex President and COO, stated, “We’re very pleased that we continue to amass a highly experienced world class team ahead of our anticipated move towards commercialization of our DenerveX System. As recently announced, the device has successfully now received SGS certification. This represents the most significant development milestone that Medovex has accomplished since the company was founded and is the most important to date leading up to CE Marking of the system for sale outside of the U.S.”
The DenerveX System consists of the DenerveX device, a single use medical device and the DenerveX Pro-40 Power Generator, both designed to be less invasive with faster recovery time than current surgical treatment options. It consists of two procedures combined into one device and is expected to provide for a longer lasting treatment solution while offering potential savings to the health care system.
DenerveX system is not yet CE marked or FDA cleared and is not yet commercially available.
Medovex was formed to acquire and develop a diversified portfolio of potentially ground breaking medical technology products. Criteria for selection include those products with potential for significant improvement in the quality of patient care combined with cost effectiveness. The Company’s first pipeline product, the DenerveX device, is intended to provide long lasting relief from pain associated with facet joint syndrome at significantly less cost than currently available options.
