“Torax Medical and physician thought leaders have collaborated … building a strong scientific foundation of evidence to support the safety and efficacy of the LINX procedure. GERD patients who do not respond to medical therapies can create a tremendous cost burden on a health care system and are often at higher risks for complications resulting from not fully treating their disease.”
President and CEO of Torax Medical
“We are very excited to see such lasting results from a 1-month, drug-free treatment that can dramatically improve the quality of life for our patients and reduce total medical costs. It was also very promising to see high therapist and patient satisfaction and 85 percent patient adherence, confirming that using Freespira® as a first line treatment for panic disorder and panic attacks makes good sense clinically and financially.”

“In the beginning, when I heard about HeartFlow®, I wanted to talk to my division chief, Dr. Srinivas Murali, about exploring it. But then I heard that Highmark Health and VITAL were already talking to HeartFlow®, which is a company from California. They needed a physician champion to put HeartFlow® to the test, and I expressed interest.”
