We believe such a study will further validate the SofPulse® technology application across the orthopedic indications. This is a fantastic relationship and I could not be more pleased about Dr. Abrams’ enthusiasm and interest in helping his own patients as well as studying the technology for other indications as we plan expansion of the label in the future.”

Dr. Abrams is an assistant professor of orthopedic surgery at the Stanford University School of Medicine and the director of sports medicine for Stanford’s varsity athletes.  He specializes in orthopedic sports medicine and arthroscopy of the shoulder, knee and elbow as well as upper extremity joint replacement surgery.  He is a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) and the American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM), among others, and currently serves as assistant team physician for the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers as well as head team physician for a number of Stanford University varsity athletic teams.  He is actively involved in research focusing on the role of inflammatory mediators, and microRNA in particular, on cartilage and tendon damage. 

Dr. Abrams received his undergraduate degree from Stanford University and his doctorate of medicine from the University of California - San Diego.  He completed his residency in orthopedic surgery at Stanford University and went on to receive additional training in Orthopedic Sports Medicine and Shoulder Surgery at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois.  Abrams has authored or co-authored over 60 peer-reviewed scientific articles, over 20 book chapters, has presented original research at numerous national and international scientific meetings, and serves as a reviewer for numerous sports medicine scientific journals.

“I am excited to collaborate with the team at Endonovo Therapeutics.  Endonovo’s goal of targeting pain management has produced an encouraging level of acceptance of SofPulse® among the medical community in such a short period of time,” said Abrams. “I look forward to working with the team to design and execute a pilot study and identify additional novel targets to pursue, and to make a meaningful impact for patients.”
