"This acquisition provides the opportunity to offer our customers another exceptional product," says Larry Davis, V.P. of US Sales for NeuroTherm. NeuroTherm has an established distribution network currently selling a wide range of products to interventional pain specialists in the United States and internationally. "This is a logical expansion of our current product offering; many of our physicians have been waiting for us to provide an epidural catheter as part of our product mix," continues Davis.

The Micron Catheter is used in a procedure called Epidural Lysis of Adhesions; a common interventional pain procedure used to remove scar tissue. The scar tissue which typically result from back surgery, inflame surrounding nerves creating a source of chronic pain.

"The Micron Catheter was particularly interesting to us because of a revolutionary design that includes a continuous coil guide wire and a tip that is not a fused cap. This removes any danger of the tip breaking during procedure," says Bill Rittman, CTO of NeuroTherm. "We are excited about offering this product, along with the opportunity to improve and expand the catheter line going forward."

NeuroTherm is a leading manufacturer of products used in the field of Interventional Pain, including radio frequency generators and related consumables used in the treatment of chronic pain. The company developed the first multi-lesion generator capable of producing multiple level lesions simultaneously. NeuroTherm markets and sells RF products for use in Interventional Pain and Podiatry; Podiatrists use radiofrequency to treat pain associated with Plantar Fasciitis & Neuroma.

NeuroTherm is based in Wilmington, Massachusetts with corporate offices in London, UK and Amsterdam, NL. Additional information about NeuroTherm can be found on at www.neurotherm.com.
