How does Tony serve spine surgeons and their care teams?
Supporting surgeons in the OR for the last 8 years and my Mom’s experience as a spine surgery patient have shaped my approach to designing spine products. My focus is on designing minimally invasive products that help our surgeon customers lessen patient pain, minimize blood loss, shorten their hospital stay, diminish scarring and decrease chance of infection.
