Monteris Medical: Robot-assisted brain surgery with MRIMonteris Medical (Plymouth, Minn.) recently announced through an SEC filing that it has raised another $9 million, about four months after it crossed the 3,000 mark of people treated with its NeuroBlate robot-assisted brain surgery device.
Nearly all of the people treated so far with NeuroBlate had epilepsy, gliomas, brain metastases and radiation necrosis.
“Patients appreciate the minimally-invasive nature of NeuroBlate,” Dr. Stephan Schuele, chief of epilepsy and clinical neurophysiology at Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, said in a May news release from Monteris announcing the 3,000th patient.
“They usually return home with a minimal hospital stay. It’s become an important tool in our kit for helping people with epilepsy and can make a real difference in people’s lives,” Schuele added.
