Stryker Corp has received 510(k) Clearance from the FDA to sell their new radiofrequency ablation device.

The clearance, announced on July 11, 2017 by the company, is for the MultiGen 2 RF Generator used during a minimally invasive procedure to relieve facet joint pain. The generator is being debuted at the 25th annual meeting of the Spine Intervention Society.

The company says the device is engineered with double the industry standard for power and achieves target temperature “faster, with fewer errors, for increased reliability and efficiency. Physicians can start a procedure with the push of a single button, create strip lesions without removing electrodes and resolve errors without stopping the procedure, maximizing time and schedules. Procedures are customizable based on patient needs and physician preferences with flexible stimulation controls.”  ~ Read More>>>
