Orthopedics This Week founder Robin Young said: “Patients, physicians, hospitals, and reimbursers rely on the inspiration and perspiration of engineers and surgeon-inventors to improve outcomes and to control costs. Most engineers and inventors are little known, so we are proud to provide awards and a venue to recognise their great talents and contributions.”
