“We are encouraged by the reception our NeuroBlate System technology has received in the US and Canada, including the newest site in California,” CEO John Schellhorn remarked. “Our corporate mission is to provide brain surgeons one additional tool to use in the fight against invasive brain disease. We feel the NeuroBlate System’s ability to ablate a large 3-D contoured volume while providing the neurosurgeon real time feedback on what has been heated to a lethal temperature offers a new paradigm for ablation evaluation.”
