Monteris Medical was founded in 1999 with the mission to create neurosurgical technology that, when used by neurosurgeons, would allow them to ablate (treat with lethal heat) brain lesions and brain tumors that may be difficult to approach via traditional methods.
Monteris Medical is focused on providing innovative MRI-guided neurosurgical ablation tools and solutions for neurosurgeons. By combining the imaging power of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), advanced navigation software and Laser Interstitial Thermal Therapy (LITT), Monteris Medical has created a system to reach virtually any area of the brain.
The NeuroBlate System (formerly known as the AutoLITT® System) applies focused laser energy to ablate brain tumors from the inside, with little or no effect on surrounding healthy tissue. NeuroBlate provides clinicians a new neurosurgical tool that offers real-time control and visualization of the therapy during laser ablation treatment. The NeuroBlate procedure is currently one of the only laser ablation 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, USA and Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
