Opioid Crisis-Potential Positive Impact by DenerveX System

Medovex’s flagship product – Denervex – blocks and removes capsular tissue from the facet joint in one procedure. The device’s slowly rotating burr removes targeted facet joint synovial membrane and joint surface while heat ablation destroys tissue and removes the end point sensory tissue of the joint. “We really think we have a disruptive approach in treating chronic pain and as a result . . . we [can] have a positive impact on the opioid crisis,” Patrick Kullmann, told BioWorld MedTech. http://medicaldevicedaily.com/servlet/com.accumedia.web.Dispatcher?next=bioWorldHeadlines_article&forceid=96585
