GT Medical Technologies, Inc. medtech innovation startup company announced today it was named Company of the Year for Health Products & Services in the 2022 American Business Awards. This honor acknowledges GT Medical Technologies’ pioneering technology GammaTile® Therapy, FDA-cleared for treating newly diagnosed malignant and recurrent brain tumors.
“We are pleased to be recognized by the American Business Awards, said Matthew E. Likens, President & CEO of GT Medical Technologies, Inc. “This is a tribute to all members of the GT Medical Technologies team who are dedicated to our purpose of Improving the Lives of Patients with Brain Tumors. Over 60 hospitals across the United States are now offering GammaTile Therapy as a radiation option for patients with operable brain tumors.”
GammaTile, which has been available to patients in the U.S. since 2019, is a Surgically Targeted Radiation Therapy (STaRT) for brain tumors. Tiles are implanted during the last five minutes of brain tumor resection procedures, going to work immediately to eliminate residual tumor cells and precluding the need for weeks and weeks of daily external beam radiation. This one-and-done therapy allows patients to resume their normal life activities rapidly after surgery.
The Gold award follows a Silver Stevie® Award recognition in 2021. More than 230 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.
“We are so pleased that we will be able to stage our first ABA awards banquet since 2019 and to celebrate, in person, the achievements of such a diverse group of organizations and individuals,” said Maggie Miller, president of the Stevie Awards.
