About Us

Shockwave Medical is revolutionizing the interventional treatment of advanced cardiovascular disease, creating new opportunities for patients and physicians by effectively targeting calcified plaque.


In 2009, three seasoned medical device entrepreneurs founded Shockwave Medical to pursue the notion of using lithotripsy, a trusted technology historically used to break kidney stones, to disrupt calcified plaque in blood vessels. Their mission was to change the nature of interventional therapy for advanced cardiovascular disease. Seven years later, the team at Shockwave Medical is developing a range of lithotripsy-enhanced interventional devices to realize that vision.
