Dr. Abbott J. Krieger Joins Avery Biomedical Devices, Inc. as Chief Clinical Liaison

COMMACK, N.Y., April 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- It is with great privilege that Avery Biomedical Devices, Inc. (ABD) announces the appointment of Abbott Krieger, M.D., F.A.C.S. as Chief Clinical Liaison.

Dr. Krieger's expertise with Avery breathing pacemakers began in 1981 while he was Chief of Neurological Surgery at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. Based on that initial experience, Dr. Krieger went on to pioneer the reinnervation of the diaphragm through the use of intercostal to phrenic nerve grafts. He reported the first successful use of the technique in Neurosurgery in October, 1994. As a visiting professor, Dr. Krieger has traveled extensively around the world attending grand rounds and assisting other physicians in the development of their local diaphragm pacing programs.

Dr. Krieger most recently served as Clinical Professor in the Department of Neurological Surgery at the USC Keck School of Medicine in Los Angeles. He is currently in private practice in Beverly Hills, CA. As Chief Clinical Liaison, Dr. Krieger will lecture about the indications and latest advances in diaphragm pacing, and be available for clinical discussions regarding potential candidates for the breathing pacemaker.

Linda Towler, CEO, states, "We are honored to have Dr. Krieger join our team. His experience and expertise will be an invaluable addition to the future growth of ABD."
