Who We Are

Advanced Excimer Laser-Based Vascular and Dermatological Therapies

Ra Medical Systems’ advanced excimer laser systems are tools for use in the treatment of vascular and dermatological diseases. We believe our products enhance patients’ quality of life by restoring blood-flow in arteries and clearing chronic skin conditions.

We currently manufacture and market two lines of products:

DABRA is our minimally-invasive excimer laser and disposable catheter system that is used by physicians as a tool in the endovascular treatment of vascular blockages resulting from lower extremity vascular disease, a form of peripheral artery disease, or PAD, both above- and below-the-knee.  DABRA breaks down plaque to its fundamental chemistry, such as proteins, lipids, and other chemical compounds, eliminating blockages by essentially dissolving them.

DABRA has been cleared by the FDA for crossing chronic total occlusions in patients with symptomatic infrainguinal lower extremity vascular disease and has an intended use for ablating a channel in occlusive peripheral vascular disease.

Pharos Excimer Laser is a powerful 308 nm ultraviolet-B excimer laser used by physicians as a tool to treat chronic skin diseases, including psoriasis, vitiligo, atopic dermatitis, and leukoderma. Pharos has FDA clearance to market Pharos in the U.S. for those skin conditions and CE mark clearance for use in the treatment of those skin conditions, as well as market clearance in China, Saudi Arabia and Thailand.

DABRA Vascular Testimonials

  • "We Were Able To Stay Within True Lumen"
