Orthopedics Panel Selected in OneMedForum SF 2011

orthoGrowth in the Orthopedic market is being driven by strong patient demographics, most notably an aging US population. The orthopedic market includes joint reconstruction, spine, trauma fixation, arthroscopy and biologics. Today, advancements across many areas of scientific research are creating innovative solutions that would not have been possible even a few years ago.  The continual development and innovation required to meet patient demand will make orthopedics an area of expansive growth for many years to come.

“Our panel sessions provide insights for investors to better understand and identify prospective investment opportunities among the 100+ emerging public and private companies that will present over the two and a half days” said Brett Johnson, CEO and OneMedPlace.

The Orthopedics panel includes highly experienced medical and business professionals who will describe what important products are on the horizon, and how these products will fare in a post healthcare – reform world.

“We have known Brett for many years, before he founded OneMedPlace and he and his team have done an incredible job of building their brand,” said Bryan Hughes, Director of P&M Corporate Finance and moderator on the panel.  “OneMed is now recognized as an esteemed venue for start-up medical ventures.  After attending OneMed’s 1st annual New York City event we immediately approached Brett about being involved in OneMed’s San Fransisco event.  The breadth and depth of the companies at the New York event was outstanding across orthopedics with a number of companies that had never presented before.   They have continued this with the quality of the companies and panelist in San Francisco. This is an excellent forum for companies driving technological advancement of orthopedics and medical devices in general.  The companies in the orthopedic tract are on the cutting edge in terms of new therapeutic approaches and technologies that will help drive down the overall cost of healthcare by delivering superior clinical outcomes with shorter procedure and recovery times.”
