WishBone Medical is a company that knows its customer and listens to their needs. Understanding user needs is key to providing the appropriate product necessary to solve the problem. Our customer, the pediatric orthopedic surgeon is the best-trained and most experienced doctor to properly diagnose, treat, and manage children's musculoskeletal problems in a child who is still growing. This includes newborn babies through young adults (ages 0-21).
Children continue to receive inappropriate, adult orthopedic products that were not originally intended for them. At best, an adult orthopedic device was altered and made smaller, without regard for the fundamental physiological elements that differentiate pediatric anatomy from that of an adult. Pediatric orthopedic implants must grow and morph with the child. Our company will develop a broad product portfolio to address the variety of conditions that pediatric orthopedic surgeons treat on a daily basis. The Company has isolated six primary categories for product development:
- Deformity Correction
- Sports Medicine
- Foot and Ankle
- Fracture Management
- Single-Use Instruments
Today, WishBone Medical is continuing what Nick Deeter, our CEO and Chairman of the Board, started over a decade ago developing new, innovative products that will address the needs of our customer. Products will be shipped in sterile, single use disposable kits, reducing infection potential in the patient. These kits will be sold to hospitals and clinics, without the need for sales representation in every operating room.
