ATLANTA, GA — (Marketwired) — 10/18/17 — Medovex Corp. (NASDAQ:MDVX) (“Medovex” or the “Company”), the developer of the DenerveX® System, a new and novel device designed for enduring relief of Facet Joint Syndrome related to back pain, today announced the Company will be participating in NASS 2017, being held in Orlando, Florida, October 25-28, 2017.
The North American Spine Society (“NASS”) is a one of a kind annual meeting where spine care professionals from around the globe will share the latest information, innovative techniques and procedures, best practices, and new technologies.
A copy of the Company’s invitation to The Surgical Innovation Cadaver Lab may be found at the following link: Medovex Invitation
The lab will be led leading spine surgeons and key opinion leaders including Vik Kapoor, MD, Manchester, UK, Martin Deeg, MD, Stuttgart, Germany, Jan Spiller, MD, Stenum-Bremen, Germany, and Gabriel Davila, MD, Medellin, Columbia.
Manfred Sablowski, Medovex Sr. Vice President of Sales and Marketing, stated, “We are excited to again participate at NASS. We developed the DenerveX System to enhance a patient’s quality of life. The agony of pain associated with the Facet Joint can be life-altering, robbing people of even the simplest joys of daily life like bending over to hug a grandchild, taking a walk or gardening. Powerful painkillers often prescribed for severe back pain are fanning the flames of the nation’s opioid epidemic. The DenerveX System involves a simple, minimally invasive, ‘keyhole’ procedure that is designed to bring faster, longer-lasting relief.”
Videos of leading spine surgeon Dr. Vik Kapoor talking about FJS and the DenerveX Device may be viewed at the following links:
Facet Joint Syndrome (FJS), also known as spinal osteoarthritis, spinal arthritis, or facet joint osteoarthritis, is a significant health and economic problem in the United States and other countries in the EU and Rest of World affecting millions each year. Current treatment options are generally temporary and there is no proven long-lasting option for FJS.
The DenerveX System is a highly differentiated technology. It denervates and removes capsular tissue from the Facet Joint in one single procedure. Treatment results from the combined effect of a deburring or polishing action and RF ablation treatment on the Facet Joint. Using this new technique, the slowly rotating burr removes the targeted facet joint synovial membrane and joint surface while the heat ablation destroys tissue and denudes any residual nervous and synovial membrane overlying the joint, removing the end point sensory tissue of the joint.
The DenerveX System consists of the DenerveX Kit which contains the DenerveX Device, a single use medical device and the DenerveX Pro-40 Power Generator. DenerveX system is CE marked and for sale in countries outside the US accepting the CE mark, but is not yet FDA cleared.
