Doctor Raghotham Patlola says he's never seen a medical device in the field of cardiology with the track record of Ra Medical System's DABRA Laser System. After presenting at an industry conference in Florida, he reminisced with the inventor of the excimer laser, which is used to unclog arteries using the power of light, about his early skepticism. With an unbelievable trial success rate of 95%, Dr. Patlola has now identified the patients that will benefit from this procedure. The idea of a painless, outpatient, local anesthesia procedure made people with difficult cases of peripheral artery disease more keen to participate. The problem is that the media likes to focus on the heart, not the legs. However, what the media does not know is that amputation has proven to cause much more psychological trauma and cost much more money than a heart attack. Listen in to heart Dr. Patlola and Dean Irwin answer business questions from Extreme Tech Challenge contestants.
