Radiologist named to Sanarus Technologies board of directors

Sanarus Technologies, a Pleasanton, Calif.-based medical device company specializing in cryoablation, has added radiologist Govindarajan “Raj” Narayanan, MD, to its board of directors. Narayanan is a professor of interventional radiology and chairman of the department of interventional radiology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.

BJ Hardman, Sanarus Technologies chairman and CEO, said in a statement that Narayanan has “extraordinary clinical and academic expertise.”

“We are proud to have the opportunity to work with Dr. Narayanan as we continue to leverage technology to scale our expert clinicians to improve the health of people with certain cancers,” Hardman said.

“Interventional radiologists are diagnosing cancer in the earliest stages and managing it with more precise, less invasive treatment,” Narayanan said in the same statement. “Cryoablation offers a minimally invasive treatment option for patients as an alternative to surgery. I'm pleased to have the opportunity to serve on the board of Sanarus and I look forward to working with BJ and the team to help advance this technology.”
