Monteris Medical, Inc.® was founded in 1999 with the mission to create new technology that when used by neurosurgeons, can allow them to ablate brain lesions and tumors that may be difficult to treat by traditional means. Monteris is focused on providing innovative MRI-guided tools and solutions for neurosurgeons who are treating diseases of the brain. By combining the imaging power of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), advanced navigation software and Laser Interstitial Thermal Therapy (LITT), Monteris has created an ablative device to reach virtually any area of the brain.
The NeuroBlate® System (also known as the AutoLITT® System) applies focused laser energy which can ablate brain tumors from the inside, with little or no effect on surrounding healthy tissue. NeuroBlate users have access to new levels of real-time control and visualization during laser ablation in the brain. The NeuroBlate procedure is currently one of the only neurosurgical procedures done in an active MRI magnet.
Monteris Medical is a privately owned neurosurgical company focused solely on diseases of the brain. We have offices in Minneapolis, Minnesota and Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. – less
