Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) August 27, 2014
NC. SonaCare Medical, LLC, the global leader in high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), announced record-setting sales of 15 HIFU devices over the past twelve months pointing to a steady worldwide surge in demand for the company’s ablation technology.
“It is truly exciting to see the results our team has achieved over the past year, especially since we are now heading into the Fall, which has historically been our most active sales period,” says Mike Klein, CEO of SonaCare Medical.
The majority of systems purchased have been outside of the United States where SonaCare sells the CE marked Sonablate® 500 transrectal prostate surgical HIFU device. Non-USA sales were well balanced between Brazil, Canada, the Dominican Republic, Italy, Mexico, Russia, Switzerland, and Uzbekistan.
SonaCare Medical generated additional sales within the United States where the company markets its 510(k) cleared Sonatherm® laparoscopic soft tissue HIFU surgical ablation system. Sonatherm sales were successfully completed at leading government medical institutions and university hospitals in Washington D.C, New York, California, and Texas.
“Achieving sales in multiple languages on four different continents over the past year is a testament to the growing worldwide demand for SonaCare’s unique HIFU platform. We are committed to working with each new customer to ensure that their SonaCare system is effectively integrated into their hospitals and surgical centers,” says Mike Klein.
