WHY ARE WE DOING THIS
AT THE AGES AND STAGES OF OUR CAREERS?
We are compassionate and curious world-class surgeon scientists, entrepreneurial leaders and bioengineering and generative AI experts. This is not just a biomechanical innovation. This is not just a pharmacological innovation. Our technology is at the interface of several disciplines. If we were to change the trajectory of how surgical implants deliver value for patients in sub-specialties ranging from urologic, cardiac, orthopedic and even neural implants, we could radically improve people’s lives across the globe.
"We are passionate about generating positive global change through the convergence of breakthrough science, cultural cross-pollination and humanistic leadership."
