Uroplasty’s Urgent(R) PC System to be Featured on National Television Program ‘The Doctors’
MINNEAPOLIS, April 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Uroplasty, Inc. (NYSE Amex: UPI), a medical device company developing, manufacturing and marketing innovative proprietary products to treat voiding dysfunctions, today announced that Monday, April 12, the company’s UrgentÃ‚® PC Neuromodulation System is expected to be featured in a segment of the popular television program “The Doctors.”
The Urgent PC System is a proprietary, minimally invasive, percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS) device designed for office-based treatment of urinary urgency, frequency and urge incontinence, symptoms often associated with overactive bladder (OAB). Local listings and times, which vary, are available through the following link: http://bit.ly/UrgentPConTV.
“Overactive bladder is an important health issue for women and it will be valuable for viewers to learn from ‘The Doctors’ – a prominent, nationally-syndicated TV program on health issues – about treatment options such as our Urgent PC System,” said David Kaysen, President and CEO of Uroplasty. “OAB is a chronic condition affecting approximately 33 million adults in the United States and more attention needs to be paid to it and the spectrum of treatment options that can help patients.”
“‘The Doctors’ program is expected to feature Dr. Kiarash Michel of Comprehensive Urology Medical Group in Los Angeles, a physician currently using Urgent PC,” said Mr. Kaysen. “Dr. Michel and one of his patients will discuss the problems she faced prior to treatment, the treatment experience with Urgent PC and her improvement afterward. This adds to attention brought to Urgent PC from previous mentions on local news programs. But this is the first appearance on a nationally syndicated program which is aimed directly at the main demographic population of potential patients who could benefit from Urgent PC therapy.”
