FRISCO, Texas, Feb. 28, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Baird Medical Devices, Inc. ("Baird Medical" or the "Company"), a leading microwave ablation ("MWA") medical device developer and provider in China and the United States, today announced that it is accelerating its expansion in the United States through senior hires, key partnerships, and capacity building initiatives to support its business.

The Company has experienced rapid momentum in the United States during the fourth quarter of 2023, in particular after receiving the U.S. FDA's clearance to market its MWA systems and technology on November 22, 2023.

Christian Chilcott has been appointed as Chief Commercial Officer, Americas, to drive growth. A seasoned medical device executive with two decades of industry experience building and operating organizations focused on minimally invasive, interventional procedures in the field of Interventional Radiology, he brings extensive experience in the areas of soft tissue biopsy, oncology, and the peripheral vasculature. Mr. Chilcott is building a team across the U.S. to support business expansion including recent hires in New York, Louisiana, Texas, Florida, and California.

"I am very excited to join Baird Medical at this critical time," said Christian Chilcott, Chief Commercial Officer, Americas, of Baird Medical. "It is essential that this market understands what makes MWA superior, safe, and the preferred choice of procedure for patients who have access. There is much work to do, but we're encouraged by the physician and patient feedback so far."

Since the inaugural procedure was conducted on January 12th by Dr. Alizera Falahati, there has been a steady increase in the number of procedures successfully conducted in the U.S. by leaders in the field of thyroid disease, including Endocrine Surgeon and Director of Robotic Surgery, Dr. Rasa Zarnegar of Weill Cornell Medicine and Dr. Raymond Yung, an Otolaryngologist and the founder of three specialty clinics in New York City. Dr. Yung practices surgery at NYU Langone Health where he also trains surgical residents. Advocacy from these influential physicians offers a strong testament to the preferred procedural approach that MWA offers to both providers and patients alike.

On February 2nd, Baird Medical hosted these luminaries and others during the North American Society of Interventional Thyroidology (NASIT) Annual Meeting. NASIT welcomed major medical institutions, including John Hopkins University School of Medicine, Stanford University Medical Center, Columbia University Medical Center, Tulane University Medical Center, Weill Cornell Medicine, and the NYU School of Medicine to deepen industry best practices and develop high-impact relationships.
