Promoting positive outcomes
Gene, VP of Research & Development
My job is rewarding. There is always something exciting happening – whether it’s testing devices, meeting with surgeons, partnering with collaborators or developing revolutionary designs. It’s great to know that my work helps improve medical outcomes for others. It’s what makes me look forward to coming to work every day.
VP of Research & Development, I am in charge of all powered instrumentation. It’s a fast-paced environment, so things never get boring. Our products go through rigorous testing and much iteration before they go to the market. My day-to-day responsibilities include design, prototypes, international standards, testing, certifications, troubleshooting, and documentation, scheduling and seeking new opportunities. We are always moving.
