Marc serves as its Chief Executive Officer at its headquarters in Boston. Renovia will conduct clinical trials, produce medical products and develop many commercial ventures.

 

Marc founded Renovia to also research treatments to address the pelvic floor disorder. A pelvic floor issue involves incontinence which widely affects women around the globe. The Boston financial community stepped up with Marc enabling him to raise $42.3 million in financing for Renovia, Inc.

 

The FDA has already approved a Renovia product to address this health problem, which is the Leva device. The FDA has also approved certain drugs like the HoFH – homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia which is a rare disease that keeps high cholesterol levels within the body.

 

The Leva device is manufactured to strengthen the pelvic floor in women. The device is very innovative because it contains a sensor system that allows users to see the position of their pelvic floor muscles and to monitor any movement that is exerted during exercises.
