CHAGRIN FALLS, Ohio, May 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- A select group of orthopedic surgeons will share their insights and ideas with industry professionals at OMTEC, the 15th Annual Orthopaedic Manufacturing & Technology Exposition and Conference, June 11-13 in Chicago.
Innovation in Orthopedics is the topic of one of two Keynote Panel Discussions which boasts three surgeon panelists who aim to share perspective on what's working in orthopedics, what gaps remain and how orthopedic manufacturers can develop new, relevant products that solve problems and alleviate pressures for hospitals and ASCs.
The Surgeon Pod, sponsored by Elos Medtech, is exclusively staffed by surgeons with deep engineering, entrepreneurial and "get it done" backgrounds. The Surgeon Pod experience is ideal for executives, engineers, and regulatory staff seeking opportunities to speak one-on-one with surgeons.

- Advanced Materials in Spine Surgery
- Personalized Implants in Joint Replacement
