Assure Holdings Adds New Surgeon Partner in Texas and Performs First Case

PARKER, Colo., March 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Assure Holdings Corp. (the “Company” or “Assure”) (TSXV:IOM) (OTCQB:ARHH), a provider of intraoperative neuromonitoring services, has added Dr. Jeffrey Ratusznik to its network in the state of Texas. He has also just performed his first case as an Assure partner.

Dr. Ratusznik is a fellowship trained spine surgeon specializing in the evaluation and treatment of the full spectrum of spinal disorders, ranging from cervical and lumbar disc degeneration to the treatment of adult and pediatric spinal deformity, fractures, and complex revision procedures. He currently practices medicine in Fort Worth, Texas.

Commenting on the partnership, Ratusznik said: “I was attracted to Assure due to their turnkey approach and ability to provide consistent, high-quality intraoperative monitoring services for my patients. Having just performed my first surgery on their platform, the transition was seamless and I was impressed by the experience of my now designated technician. These factors were a driving force behind my decision to align with Assure, and I look forward to our partnership as it enables me to focus solely on helping my patients.”

Just last November, Assure performed its first case in Texas—an important event validating the scalability of Assure’s model outside of Colorado.

“Part of our mission when founding this company was to streamline the neuromonitoring process to help make the surgeon’s practice more efficient,” said Preston Parsons, founder and chairman of Assure. “We welcome Dr. Ratusznik to Assure and look forward to monitoring many more of his cases, allowing his team to do what they do best. We believe Texas has many more doctors like him, and we look forward to continuing our growth in this great state.”
