Medical device and technology company Lazurite has received recognition from Medical Device Network Excellence Awards & Rankings. Lazurite ranked as Commended for the Innovation, Product Launches and Research and Development categories. All Commended companies will be entered into the Medical Device Network Awards at the end of the year.

“The company is ranked off the back of the launch of its ArthroFree Wireless Surgical Camera System, which allows for minimally invasive surgery without the need for camera and light wires,” according to Medical Device Network Excellence Awards & Rankings. “The company hit an important milestone in March 2022 when it received U.S. Food and Drug Administration market clearance for the ArthroFree System. This was followed in September 2022 by another important step as the first surgery using the system was performed by orthopedic surgeon Laith M. Jazrawi, MD at NYU Langone Health.”

The statement continued, “The company had already made steps towards a market introduction in 2021, partnering with the Center for Health Affairs, the Northeast Ohio hospitals association, and its affiliate CHAMPS Group Purchasing, with an aim to provide new surgical tools in the market and operating rooms in Northeast Ohio and the U.S. This was followed by additional partnerships with Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) in New York, University Hospitals of Cleveland, and LG Electronics USA.”

“We are proud to be recognized by Medical Device Network for innovation, product launches, and research and development in 2022,” Lazurite CEO and cofounder Eugene Malinskiy says, following the award recognition. “The Medical Device Network platform is well known as a voice of authority in the global industry. This recognition will help us as we continue our launch of the ArthroFree System during the next several months and gain traction with our initial target market of orthopedic and sports medicine surgeons.”
