COMMACK, N.Y., July 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- It is a great honor for Avery Biomedical Devices, Inc. (ABD) to announce the appointment of the world-renowned Thoracic and Cardiovascular surgeon, Mark E Ginsburg, M.D., to its Board of Directors.
Dr. Ginsburg, with over 34 years of experience, is currently practicing at two facilities: NY Presbyterian Hospital and Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center. Dr. Ginsburg has been implanting the Avery Breathing Pacemaker since the late 1980's and is considered an expert in the implantation of the Avery System. In addition, he has travelled the world to implant the Avery System in those patients who are unable to travel to the United States. He has published numerous scientific papers and books such as Lung Volume Reduction Surgery (LVRS) and Emphysema Treatments. In addition, he was lead investigator on several clinical trials.
Martin Dobelle, CEO, states, "We are humbled to have Dr. Ginsburg join our Board of Directors. His experience and expertise will be invaluable to the future growth of ABD."
Dr. Ginsburg states, "It is a privilege to serve on the Board of Directors of ABD. This company has served the world's need in diaphragm pacing. Exciting new products are under development in this and related arenas as well. I look forward to providing medical and surgical input to the Board."
Avery Biomedical Devices, Inc. is a privately-held company located on Long Island, New York. It manufactures the Avery Breathing Pacemaker System: an implanted diaphragmatic pacemaker which is used to free many quadriplegics, central sleep apnea and diaphragm paralysis patients from mechanical ventilation. Most patients strongly prefer pacing to mechanical ventilation for reasons such as breathing and speech patterns, ease of eating and drinking and improved sense of smell. Since breathing pacemakers costs far less than mechanical ventilation and do not use percutaneous wire that pass through the skin (infection risk), it is the more prudent choice for life support.
The Avery Breathing Pacemaker is the only device of its kind with premarket approval from the USFDA and CE marking privileges under the European Active Implantable Medical Device Directive. Should you know of a patient with quadriplegia, central sleep apnea, diaphragm paralysis or another condition that may benefit from an Avery Breathing Pacemaker, please contact us.
