Advisory Board

“Voice of Customer” has been the driving force behind ORTHOWORLD’s offerings since its founding in 1992. In fact, BONEZONE, and later OMTEC, were each created in direct response to the manufacturing challenges faced by orthopedic device company professionals. In that spirit, the Industry Advisory Board was created in 2005 to formalize the channel through which the issues of the day could be communicated and prioritized for action.

Advisory Board Members lend weight and perspective to today’s ever-changing business dynamics by giving accounts of their first-hand experiences—what’s working and what isn’t—and by identifying the knowledge gaps and sources of untapped opportunity. Amidst seemingly competing priorities, the Advisory Board keeps education, articles and networking relevant and purposeful.

MISSION: To educate, connect and empower the people who build orthopedic products.

Editorial Profile

Orthopaedic device commercialization is no longer a topic for a select audience. It is, perhaps, the most pressing issue facing the industry, second only to patient outcomes. Clinical data, reimbursement, testing, UDI, quality measures, inventory management, price pressures; these topics only scratch the surface of “commercialization.” BONEZONE contributes to these important subjects by giving its readers a trustworthy and purposeful perspective. Actionable advice, practical tools and guidance from real people who have first-hand knowledge of the trials and errors it takes to fuel progress are the foundation of BONEZONE’s editorial content.

Bolstered by two decades of providing strategic insights to industry CEOs, BONEZONE’s leadership is uniquely equipped to tackle complex issues, translating them into articles that readers can absorb to boost their competence and ultimately, their contributions to their companies.

“Voice of customer” is the driving force behind all of ORTHOWORLD’s offerings, and BONEZONE leverages surveys and input from its Advisory Board to keep content relevant and useful to readers. Executives from the following companies presently suggest and critique content: Active Implants | Arthrex | DePuy Synthes | Medtronic | MicroPort Orthopedics Smith & Nephew | Stryker | Tyber Medical | Wright Medical | Zimmer Biomet
