Our vision is to make unnecessary surgery a thing of the past and non-invasive High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) a standard of care. Theraclion has revolutionized HIFU – until then only applied to deep-seated targets such as for example prostate cancer and myoma – by developing a solution for non-deep targets. This is technically extremely difficult and this is where we excel.
We started by commercializing echotherapy products in 2013/14 in the field of breast fibroadenoma – a benign disease which allowed us to safely and thoroughly apply the technology in a non-complex pathology. In 2015 we refocused our efforts on the market of thyroid tumors, which made us the only expert in treating superficial lesions in a complex anatomical environment.
After a first-in-human case in 2017, Theraclion received the CE Mark for the world’s first non-invasive solution for the treatment of varicose veins in 2019 – a disease which accounts for 5 Million surgeries annually performed – up-to now – in an operation room.
But our story doesn’t end here. Theraclion has created a HIFU platform which could enable physicians to treat any superficial target they want. For example in oncology, first women with advanced cases of breast cancer have been treated with a combination of echotherapy and immunotherapy.
