(Nasdaq: ENDO), an innovative medical device company focused on the development of minimally invasive technologies used by urologists and interventional radiologists for tissue and tumor ablation, announced today that focal cryoablation was highlighted as having "low morbidity" in the July issue of Urology Times.
