Gynesonics Announces First Office-Based Sonata Treatment Procedure in the State of Texas

Dr. John Thoppil, Current President of the Texas Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (TAOG), Performs Sonata Procedure in Austin

Gynesonics®, a women’s healthcare company focused on the development of minimally invasive solutions for symptomatic uterine fibroids, announced today that Dr. John Thoppil is the first physician in the state of Texas to offer its Sonata® Treatment to women with symptomatic uterine fibroids as an office-based procedure at his River Place OB/GYN facility in Austin.

“I am excited to offer this transcervical option for fibroid treatment in an office setting.  Sonata is brilliant in concept; it reduces symptoms without any incisions at all,” said John Thoppil, MD, FACOG and President of TAOG.  “We are honored to be the first medical group to offer Sonata in-office, in the state of Texas.  In addition to the office, we will be offering the procedure in the traditional outpatient surgical center setting.  The ability to utilize multiple sites of service, with no incisions and a rapid recovery, is one of the most important recent treatment advances for women with symptomatic fibroids and their physicians, not only in Texas, but across the globe.”

The Sonata technology platform integrates the first and only commercial intrauterine ultrasound system with a proprietary advanced radiofrequency ablation device, providing an incision-free, uterus-preserving, transcervical treatment for symptomatic uterine fibroids.  The Sonata Treatment is a breakthrough alternative to hysterectomy and myomectomy, and can treat a wider range of fibroid types, sizes, and locations than hysteroscopic myomectomy.  Fibroids are treated from within the uterus, so treatment with the Sonata System requires no incisions, no tissue is surgically removed, and the uterus is retained.  (FDA cleared.)

“We are incredibly fortunate to have advocates like Dr. Thoppil, who are able to quickly utilize the advantages unique to the Sonata Transcervical Fibroid Ablation (TFA) Procedure,” said Chris Owens, President and CEO of Gynesonics.  “The recent guidelines released by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recognized TFA as an important fibroid treatment that can be offered to women.  Sonata is the only fibroid ablation system that does not require incisions or abdominal surgery.  Sonata has been uniquely designed to help patients gain access to care through multiple sites of service, supporting rapid adoption around the globe.”

Dr. Sachita Shah, Sr. Director, Global Health, Butterfly Network, "Butterfly is proud to continue improving maternal health equity through Phase Two of the largest-scale handheld ultrasound distribution and training ever conducted in Sub-Saharan Africa. South Africa is an emerging market that continues to have disproportionately high rates of maternal mortality and stillbirth. Patients need easier access to antenatal imaging, and clinicians need better capabilities for screening high-risk conditions that lead to disproportionately worse pregnancy outcomes in rural areas in the public sector. Together with CHAI and GUSI, we can tackle this by making ultrasound much more accessible, so high-risk conditions can be identified earlier in care, which is known to improve outcomes.”
The clinical Study will enroll up to 97 patients at up to 12 European investigational sites. Completion of the study is expected this year, and results will support CE mark and pre-market approval submissions reports Vivasure Medical.
Dr. Michael Newman, Indaptus’ Founder, Chief Scientific Officer, and lead author, commented, “The new data are consistent with our preclinical animal tumor model studies and provide evidence for our hypothesis that patented Decoy bacteria can activate a wide range of innate and adaptive human immune cells involved in fighting tumors.  This aligns with what we’ve observed in our ongoing Phase 1 clinical trial of Decoy20 – broad immune activation, as evidenced by transiently increased levels of many key cytokines and chemokines following single dose administration. These findings bolster our confidence in Decoy20's potential as a multifaceted immunotherapy.”
