RF Surgical Systems, Inc. Hires John T. Buhler as New CEO

RF Surgical Systems Inc. (RFS), the market leader in retained surgical item detection, today announced the appointment of John T. Buhler as President and Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Buhler is assuming the role from Kevin Cosens, whose seven years of service helped establish the company’s strong foundation.

Mr. Buhler brings more than 30 years of medical technology industry leadership experience to RFS, most recently as President & COO of Natus Medical (BABY). He was previously President & CEO of SenoRx Inc. (Nasdaq:SENO). Mr. Buhler’s experience also includes executive-level positions at GE, Ultrasonix and Diasonics. He has extensive experience managing high-growth companies and crafting critical strategic initiatives.

Dr. Jeffrey Port, MD, Co-founder and Chairman of RF Surgical, noted, “John’s exemplary track record in transforming rapidly growing medical technology companies into industry leaders will be critical as we grow RF Surgical beyond its current base of 300 hospitals. His experience acquiring and integrating products into dynamic companies will also fuel growth and opportunities beyond retained surgical object detection.”

“The team at RF Surgical has done an outstanding job creating an industry-leading technology for detecting retained surgical objects that can harm patients if left in the body post-surgery. I’m excited to help propel this dynamic business through its next phases of growth,” said Mr. Buhler. “The RF Surgical Detection System is an exciting and elegant solution for patients, nurses and physicians providing a seamless, cost-effective layer of safety that’s been proven to eliminate retained surgical objects. The technology is intuitive to use and helps institutions improve patient safety, increase efficiency, and reduce cost and liability.”
