“ArthroCare’s Parallax portfolio is a natural fit with
NeuroTherm’s existing competencies in interventional pain
management, allowing us to leverage our clinical expertise and
strong sales channels,” says Larry Hicks, CEO of NeuroTherm. “This
is an exciting opportunity that will enable us to expand our
customer base into new markets while offering our existing
customers more treatment options for their patients. The Parallax
and Contour product lines fit very well within NeuroTherm’s
platform for the interventional pain and radiology space and is
highly complementary to our existing product offering,” continues

and diversified our business, we are entering a market aligned with
demographic trends and growing medical need,” says Chris Boyer,

important part of our continued growth plans,” continues Boyer.
