Joimax has announced the grand opening of its new state-of-the-art Training and Education Center in Irvine, USA. The company will be holding its first workshop at the centre on 8–9 September 2017.
January 2017 saw the relase of a US Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) reimbursement code covering Joimax’s endoscopic procedures. The company has since reported a growth in demand for its products among US physicians and patients. Maximilian Ries, general manager for Joimax has stated that the company is continuing to post record sales by nearly doubling its year to date US revenues.
“This new wet lab facility provides a major base for supporting our fast growing education needs for both our new sales and clinical associates, but moreover it’s a place for physicians to be trained,” states Bob Wolownik, national director of Sales for the company.
Joimax has expanded its reimbursement support offerings for endoscopic spine procedures. It has opened an external coding support hotline that it manages along with a payer correspondence package. The company’s vice president of operations and reimbursement, Brian Schneider, recently states, “We have seen a significant rise in interest from both payers and physicians asking to receive information and streamline communication regarding the new endoscopic spine code.”
Joimax will be offering workshops and educational sessions over the coming months at:
- SMISS 14–16 September 2017; Las Vegas, USA
- NASS 25–28 October 2017; Orlando, USA
“All this is an important step towards the full acceptance of endoscopic minimally invasive spine surgery techniques and their benefits to both the physician and their patients in the US now as well,” echoes Wolfgang Ries, founder and chief executive officer of Joimax.
Earlier this year, Joimax also received multiple new product registrations in Asia and in Brazil.
