NeuroTherm, a Wilmington, Mass.-based medical device maker focused on interventional pain, has acquired Micron Catheter, whose product is used in an interventional pain procedure used to remove scar tissue. NeuroTherm is a portfolio company of The Cortec Group.
NeuroTherm announces the acquisition of the Micron Catheter from private owners in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida on June 17, 2009.
“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.”
