Fremont, CA (PRWEB) September 09, 2015
California based myoscience, inc., continues to revolutionize cryotherapy pain treatments with the release of the new 1x55mm Smart Tip for the iovera° device. The new Smart Tip consists of a single cannula that is 55mm in length, enabling physicians to reach peripheral nerves that are deeper in the body. This is the second Smart Tip released for the treatment of peripheral nerves to block pain with the iovera° device.
“With the launch of the 1x55mm Smart Tip, we have expanded the treatment possibilities,” says Jeff Gold, CEO of myoscience. “The current 3x6.9mm Smart Tip is excellent for superficial nerves and now, with the 1x55mm, we are able to reach a wide range of deep nerves, making the iovera° system a must-have treatment option for any physician specializing in pain.”
The iovera° treatment is powered by the Focused Cold TherapyTM delivery system, a patented miniaturization of traditional cryotherapy. Offering patients a non-systemic, minimally-invasive treatment for pain, physicians are excited about the possibilities with the 1x55mm Smart Tip.
David Smolins, MD, of Remedy Medical Group in Redwood City, CA says, "This is an exciting development for physicians and patients. The iovera° 1x55mm Smart Tip allows for cryoablative treatment of anatomy previously difficult to access. This greatly increases the conditions we can treat with this modality, benefiting the large population of patients seeking relief for their pain. iovera° is intuitive and easy to use, and its application in the treatment of lumbar conditions is very promising."
Over 2,000 commercial iovera° treatments have been performed to date in the U.S. Peripheral nerves treated with the iovera° system are temporarily stopped from signaling for a period of time, followed by a restoration of function. Results from the iovera° treatment can be felt immediately after treatment and last until the nerve has regenerated.
