'Where Technology Meets Science': Doctors, Medical Students Take Experimental Medtech For A Spin In Pittsburgh's Center For Surgical Arts
Some big-name device-makers – Medtronic, Stryker, Karl Storz, Siemens and more – are donating expensive capital equipment to the Center for Surgical Arts, a modern teaching lab that boasts 21 bays for training residents and fellows in various types of surgery. The companies are doing this to not only nail down future customers, but to test new devices, as well. The Center also includes a Bose test frame that was used to help clear Alphatec Spine's Solus device with US FDA without a clinical trial. "Those can be multimillion-dollar studies. So, to be able to do that, and to have the FDA feel comfortable with that, is kind of a cool capability," says Dr. Donald Whiting, chair of the Allegheny Health Network Neuroscience Institute.
Stryker and plaintiff attorneys are hashing out an agreement to settle thousands of lawsuits brought by patients who say they were injured by the device-maker's hip implants.
AdvaMed's next board chair will be Stryker CEO Kevin Lobo, who will fill the leadership role beginning next March, when current chair Nadim Yared's two-year tenure is over. Lobo pledged to to work to improve diversity in industry.
Stryker is continuing its buying spree with the purchase of HyperBranch Medical Technology. The orthopedics giant announced it will pay $220m in an all-cash deal to buy the maker of Adherus, a hydrogel that helps dural repair.
