Women's Sexual Health Company Changes Name in Preparation for Market Entry
Date:11/9/2009

PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Women's sexual health company, TivaMed, today announced it has changed its name to Viveve as it prepares for a 2010 launch of its Viveve system to OB/GYNs in select U.S. markets.

Many are not fully aware of treatment options that are available," said Sandra Carson, MD, chief of Reproductive Endocrinology at women and Infants Hospital at Brown University. "I expect the Viveve procedure will provide a catalyst for a conversation between patients and their physicians about vaginal laxity."

The Viveve system received FDA clearance in 2008. Three-month follow up results from Viveve's first-in-women tri
