PLEASANTON, Calif. – October 29, 2018 – NeoTract, a wholly owned subsidiary of Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE:TFX) focused on addressing unmet needs in the field of urology, today announced the company received the Phoenix 2018 Emerging Growth Company Award at the 25th Annual Phoenix Medical Device and Diagnostic Conference in Laguna Beach, Calif. sponsored by the firm Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati.
The Emerging Growth Company award is presented to an organization that has undergone a strategically significant merger, a highly successful IPO, dramatic growth in sales, or the creation of a major new product or service. Last year, NeoTract was acquired by Teleflex Incorporated in a transaction valued at up to $1.1 billion.
“We are thrilled to be recognized with the Emerging Growth Award by the respected Phoenix conference organizers and our medtech community,” said Dave Amerson, president of the Teleflex Interventional Urology business unit. “I am pleased to share this award with every member of the NeoTract team. Although we are proud of our achievement as a business, we are even prouder that we’re succeeding in our mission to improve the lives of men around the world with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).”
NeoTract’s FDA-cleared UroLift® System is a proven, minimally invasive technology for treating lower urinary tract symptoms due to BPH. The UroLift permanent implants, delivered during a minimally invasive transurethral outpatient procedure, relieve prostate obstruction and open the urethra directly without cutting, heating, or removing prostate tissue. The UroLift System Prostatic Urethral Lift procedure is recommended for the treatment of BPH in both the American Urological Association and European Association of Urology clinical guidelines.
The Phoenix Awards recognize outstanding achievements in the medical device and diagnostic industry to individuals and companies selected by industry CEOs. NeoTract received the Phoenix Most Promising New Product Award in 2016.
