Finally…another pediatric orthopedic company! WishBone Medical, Inc. has just opened in Warsaw, Indiana.
“WishBone Medical is committed to providing anatomically-appropriate innovative implants and instruments in sterile-packed, single-use, disposable kits to surgeons that fix orthopedic problems in kids. These sterile kits will focus on minimizing disease, preventing infection, reducing overall costs for our customers and achieving the best outcomes for children who are still growing; because kids are not just little adults,” said Nick Deeter, founder and chairman of the Board and CEO of WishBone Medical, in the January 17, 2017 news release.
As indicated in the news release, “In 2006, Nick Deeter started OrthoPediatrics because he saw an unmet need in the pediatric orthopedic space. Nick felt the standards for treatment in children were unacceptable and that the use of adult medical devices in these children could not continue. These patients needed medical devices that were designed for their smaller anatomy and unique needs. Nick worked with engineers and surgeons to develop products that could meet the needs of growing children.”
