"I am very pleased to announce Kelly's appointment to lead our important HealthTronics subsidiary," said David Holveck, president and chief executive officer of Endo Pharmaceuticals. "Kelly brings a wealth of experience leading global businesses through the integration of scientific, consumer and professional insights and creating value by putting the customer and patient at the center. Kelly's experiences and skills will be invaluable to Endo's continued transformation to provide integrated healthcare solutions to patients, payers and providers, as well as HealthTronics' mission to provide the most advanced technology and premier support systems to urologists, hospitals, surgery centers and clinics. I would also like to thank James Whittenburg for his contributions to Endo.  Under his leadership, the HealthTronics business has become an industry leader and national provider of urological services and products."
