Ken was instrumental in leading the commercial development and expansion as the Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing for six years.

Their deep knowledge of the urology market will be invaluable in furthering the adoption of the PrecisionPoint™ Transperineal Access System.” said inventor and founder Dr. Matthew Allaway, who will remain as President and Chairman of the Board.
“I am thrilled to be joining Dr. Allaway and his team to accelerate the adoption of this life changing technology. Our success will be measured by our ability to virtually eliminate the unnecessary risk of infection and sepsis after a routine diagnostic treatment. We will be able to increase cancer detection rates by generating better tissue samples and reduce the over prescription of antibiotics that is required for TRUS (transrectal ultrasound biopsy)” said Ken Knudson, incoming CEO.
