About CuraLase

Founded in 2005 and headquartered in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, CuraLase has administered more than 60,000 treatments to patients from 12 countries, establishing an international reputation for exceptional patient care. With an 87% success rate, CuraLase offers a non-invasive treatment option to individuals with pain. Porter views CuraLase as a tool that allows patients to “get their quality of life back.” At this time, other franchise locations include Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Shenandoah, Texas; and Melbourne, Florida.

Company History

Since its founding in 2005, CuraLase has been an innovator in non-invasive laser treatment for a multitude of painful conditions. Roger Porter, inventor and engineer, was seeking an alternative treatment for a family member's excruciating pain from rheumatoid arthritis when he met Dr. Frank G. McArthur. Dr. McArthur, Past Medical Director of HealthSouth, had studied, tested and observed patient response to laser treatments for the relief of pain.

Working together, Porter and McArthur researched and developed an innovative laser device and initial protocols. In November 2005, Porter filed an application with the FDA for approval of the device. In the following month, CuraeLase, Inc., the manufacturer of the device, received clearance for its use. The FDA rated the CL1000 with the safest classification awarded to any treatment modality—Non-Significant Risk. In October 2011, Porter received a patent for the device from the U.S. Patent Office. He has a second patent which is pending and expected to be awarded in 2012.

The first clinic opened in March 2006 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Porter and a team of seven physicians refined the initial protocols and developed additional protocols. While delivering over 60,000 treatments to more than 6,000 patients, the team further refined and perfected the protocols.

Porter's goal was to help patients be free from pain without surgical complications or mind-numbing medications. Patients have come from all across the nation and 10 other countries. The clinic has earned a well-deserved reputation of greatly reducing or eliminating chronic and acute pain associated with a variety of painful conditions.

In December 2011, CuraLase Global, Inc. was formed for the purpose of franchising pain relief clinics under the registered trademark name "CuraLase®."
