Freehold, NJ, Oct. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE --MEDIFIRST SOLUTIONS, INC. (MFST) (the “Company” or “Medifirst”), a provider of innovative laser technology with its FDA 510(k) cleared Infrared TTML-810/2000 Laser Thermal Therapeutic Device and a provider of Specialty Pharmacy Drug Consulting Services and Distributor of USA Premium Hemp and CBD products available at www.usacbdshopper.com, is pleased to provide a company update.
As stated in recent announcements, one of the new areas the Company has been focusing on with its FDA cleared Infrared Laser, is to treat the side effects of cancer therapy called Oral Mucositis. After working with an affiliate company to host three recent educational laser events, and getting very positive feedback, Medifirst plans to attend and exhibit at the Greater NY Dental Meeting November 29th to December 4th at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City. The Company considers this a very high profile venue to present its laser for the treatment of Oral Mucositis and TMJ. Clinical studies have shown the Infrared Laser to be very effective for patients who suffer from the pain and side effects of TMJ. The Dental Meeting is considered the largest dental meeting in the United States with over 52,000 attendees. Additionally, working with an affiliate company, we anticipate several NYC dental practices to begin to offer the laser treatments for Oral Mucositis in the upcoming months.
In a major new development, two major healthcare providers have recently approved laser therapy billing for the treatment of Oral Mucositis. The term Photobiomodulation (the science behind the laser), we believe, is starting to become recognized as mainstream in medicine as health insurance providers and medical organizations are updating their policies and stating that (Low Light Laser Therapy, LLLT) laser treatments are accepted for Oral Mucositis. Commented Medifirst President Bruce J. Schoengood, “Having an approved CPT code is the gold standard for medical billing. This is very exciting and positions Medifirst to present our Infrared laser to medical professionals that is billable with the proven laser technology. A business strategy we are implementing is to work with dentists, oral surgeons, ENTs, and Physical Therapists thereby expanding their medical services by offering a turn-key business model which can include our Aesthetic Laser Program called the Time Machine Program and our Head & Neck Laser Program for pain, inflammation, TMJ and Oral Mucositis.”
The Medifirst Infrared 810nm Laser can be used for patients who develop painful or debilitating ulcers in the soft tissues within the oral cavity. According to industry statistics, Oral Mucositis affects roughly 400,000 patients annually in the United States, affecting their cheeks, lips, gums, inner cavity and tonsilary region which includes all of the soft tissues. Treatment options today are rather limited. Patients are usually given pain medication and/or antiseptic mouthwash. Beyond that, we believe, there's not much doctors can do for the painful condition that, at advanced stages, can inhibit a patient's ability to eat and speak.
