THE INNOVATION ADVISORY BOARD

 

The IAB is a group of like-minded and out-of-the box thinking physicians who come from relatively diverse backgrounds of practice in specific specialties.  The Foot & Ankle specialty is the initial IAB, and members have a significant level of collective experience in new product innovation and development.  They collaborate with each other in further development of future technologies, assist other medical professionals in the evaluation and protection of their own ideas in an unbiased, cost-effective manner, and evaluate new technologies that are presented to the Board.
