Stellartech was founded in 1988 by Roger A. Stern, Ph.D. to develop innovative electronic devices for start-up companies in the medical industry. The company has grown steadily over the years, and has built a strong reputation based on its expertise in the development and manufacture of complex energy delivery systems and other sophisticated medical equipment.
In the late 1990’s, Stellartech’s capabilities expanded to include design and manufacture of disposable devices. Today Stellartech employs over 130 people in its state-of-the-art facility in the heart of Silicon Valley.
A pioneer in energy-based therapies, Stellartech is responsible for the development of many “firsts” in the medical device industry, including:
- The first temperature controlled RF generator for cardiac ablation (U.S.)
- The first monopolar capacitive RF tissue remodeling system for cosmetic use
- The first balloon-based system for esophageal ablation
