Halt Medical, Inc. Announces The First Acquisition Of Acessa Guidance SystemBRENTWOOD, Calif., June 27, 2016 -- (Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network) -- Halt Medical, Inc. announced today that Trinity Park Surgery Center, Arlington, TX, is the first facility in the United States to acquire the Acessa® Guidance System1.
"We are honored to be partnering with a facility that is passionate about investing in a fibroid treatment center of excellence," said Kim Bridges, Halt Medical President and CEO.
"At Trinity Park Surgery Center, we pride ourselves in offering the most advanced, minimally invasive platforms," added Jessica Doll, Administrator (BSN, RN). "This technology is an important advancement in the field of gynecology. We wanted to be the first in the United States to make it readily available to our physicians and patients."
The Acessa Guidance System incorporates electromagnetic tracking technology and radiofrequency ablation to treat symptomatic uterine fibroids laparoscopically. When coupled with ultrasound, it provides instant feedback of device trajectory to the targeted fibroid and tracks the surgical instruments in real time.
"Hysterectomy and myomectomy are not always the answer for women with heavy bleeding and pain. The Acessa Guidance System provides women with symptomatic uterine fibroids more treatment options. After using Acessa for nearly two years, it's become a standard of care in my practice," said Dr. Kimberly Lefholz, Matlock OB/GYN, Arlington, TX. Dr. Lefholz was also the first gynecologist in the United States to treat a patient commercially with the Acessa Guidance System.
