ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Nov 3, 2016) - Medovex Corp. (NASDAQ: MDVX), a developer of medical technology products, today announced that the Company held a successful cadaver lab during NASS 2016.
Thousands of spine clinicians gathered at the Boston Convention and Exhibition center for the Annual North American Spine Society in Boston, MA from October 26th to 28th, 2016. The conference and exhibition provided a perfect setting for an outstanding agenda with specialty surgical labs to highlight the innovative DenerveX™ System, a minimally invasive surgical (MIS) procedure pioneered by Medovex. The DenerveX System was built around the combination of denervation and capsulectomy with reproducible results, a potential paradigm shift in the treatment of Facet Joint pain.
