As the Director of Device Development at Hospital for Special surgery (HSS) I have over thirty years of medical research and device development experience. I have worked with multiple services at HSS including Adult Hip and Knee Replacement, Foot and Ankle, Hand and Upper Extremity, Hip Preservation, Spine and Sports Medicine. In working with these services and the Biomechanics department, I’ve contributed to the development of implants for the knee, hip, elbow and spine. These implants have been licensed to several orthopedic companies and are sold worldwide. I am an inventor of twenty-five patented medical devices and have multiple publications in the medical device area. In addition, I am a registered US Patent Agent.
