‘Ones to Watch’: Kyphon and Allergan

In its latest issue, National Review of air max 95 pas cher Medicine, a publication aimed at Canadian physicians, cites Kyphon and Allergan as companies to watch in the medical device field. Kyphon specializes in restoring spine function and has a device for relieving pressure on the spine. Allergan’s better known as a pharma player, but it spread its wings last month when it dropped $97 million on EndoArt and its gastric band device. The purchase made Allergan the only company with a U.S.-approved device for gastric banding (although Red Herring says it won’t enjoy that luxury much longer), commonly offered as a less invasive option to gastric bypass surgery. NRM highlights Kyphon and Allergan, but is a believer in the industry as a whole, noting, “From stents to joint replacement to artificial organs, medical devices are destined to play an increasingly important role in medicine. The industry should not be much affected by a downturn.”http://www.airmaxfrance2015.com/
