Milestone Scientific Commences Sales of CompuFlo® Epidural Disposables within Three Prominent Colorado Pain Management Clinics
Follows successful evaluation by Dr. Brad Sisson, MD, including complex thoracic procedures
ROSELAND, N.J., March 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Milestone Scientific Inc. (NYSE:MLSS), a leading developer of computerized drug delivery instruments that provide painless and precise injections, today announced that it has commenced sales of CompuFlo® Epidural disposables across three pain management clinics in Colorado: Spine Correction Center of the Rockies; Colorado Clinic; and Colorado Accident and Injury. Adoption of the technology by these clinics follows a successful evaluation process by Dr. Brad Sisson, MD, a recognized pain management doctor. Dr. Sisson initially conducted five cases using the CompuFlo Epidural instrument, in which he reported 100% success. The evaluation included procedures within the thoracic region of the spine, following the recent FDA approval of the CompuFlo Epidural System for use in this indication. Dr. Sisson has practiced pain management in Colorado since 1998 and performed over 15,000 epidural procedures during his career.
Dr. Brad Sisson commented, “I am excited to incorporate Milestone Scientific’s CompuFlo Epidural Instrument within my practice following a successful evaluation. The CompuFlo Epidural Instrument was valuable in helping navigate the challenging anatomical regions in the thoracic region and cervical thoracic junction in real-time. The instrument is easy to use and provides both audible and visual feedback, including confirmation of epidural placement. As a result, this instrument offers a number of advantages in terms of safety, efficiency and reduced risk of complications. I strongly recommend this instrument for any pain management practitioners, especially in the higher thoracic cervical regions of the spine, where the incidence rates of morbidity are believed to be much higher, due to the difficulties accessing the epidural space.”
Arjan Haverhals, CEO and president of Milestone Scientific, stated, “We are pleased to witness the adoption of our technology by another three pain management clinics following a successful evaluation period. The further validation of our technology by Dr. Sisson illustrates his commitment to incorporating the latest technologies to improve patient outcomes and safety, especially within the more difficult thoracic region of the spine. Moreover, this occurred just two weeks following the receipt of 510(k) FDA clearance for use in the thoracic region of the spine, which we believe highlights the importance and distinct benefits of our technology for both patients and providers.”
