What is a Thermocoagulator?
Cure Medical, in partnership with Liger Medical, has created a cutting-edge medical device and solution for the prevention and treatment of cervical cancer. The Thermocoagulator (TC) uses the latest state-of-the-art technology to treat pre-cancerous cell lesions in the cervix, caused by the HPV virus.
The device is handheld, battery-operated, and quicker, easier to use and as efficacious as cryotherapy. The Thermocoagulator procedure is approximately 20-seconds per treatment to ablate the lesions, as compared to cryotherapy, which requires 11-minutes per treatment.
The probe will heat to 100 degrees Celsius. The Thermocoagulator requires no costly gas cylinders, as needed in cryotherapy. Each probe is good for 50 uses.
