No, it is when scar tissue develops in the shoulder joint usually from an injury although sometimes it happens for no apparent reason. It can cause severe restriction in motion of the shoulder and also significant pain. Treatment now is physical therapy -many months or sometimes years and doesn't always help, anti-inflammatories, cortisone injections into the joint and lastly arthroscopic surgery to burn/break up the scar tissue followed by intensive physical therapy to make sure it doesn't happen again. It seems to happen more in women and also in diabetics and patients who have hypothyroidism. It can however happen in anyone.
I too am very enthusiastic. I have been following this company for the last couple of years. Arun is systematically putting in place the foundation. He is laying the groundwork so that novadaq technology will become standard of care in multiple arenas. It is a brilliant strategy. Partnering with ISRG allowed his technology to be introduced to many surgeons and hospital systems. Now he has amassed a significant sales force to further deploy his systems. In addition, he has numerous studies underway that look like they will be game changers - endometriosis, pillar, lymph nodes and wound care. Breast reconstruction has already proven itself. I feel very confident that this company will not only be around many years from now but will be necessary for standard of care. Because of this, it is a no brainer investment. It will steadily increase in value. Thanks to endo and Anderson Gordon for very informative and well thought out posts. Thanks to fish who turned me on to this stock a couple of years ago.
