WARSAW — WishBone Medical, Inc., a new pediatric orthopedic company, has officially opened in Warsaw. WishBone Medical is focused on being an industry leader in the pediatric orthopedic market by providing proprietary products through a capital efficient business model. The Chamber of Commerce welcomed WishBone with a ribbon cutting at their office, 2150 North Pointe Dr., Warsaw, on March 20.
WishBone Medical, Inc. founder Nick Deeter was also the founder of OrthoPediatrics. In 2006, Deeter started OrthoPediatrics because he saw an unmet need in the pediatric orthopedic space. He felt the standards for treatment in children were unacceptable and that the use of adult medical devices in these children could not continue. These patients needed medical devices that were designed for their smaller anatomy and unique needs. Deeter worked with engineers and surgeons to develop products that could meet the needs of growing children.
“WishBone Medical is committed to providing anatomically-appropriate innovative implants and instruments in sterile-packed, single-use, disposable kits to surgeons that fix orthopedic problems in kids. These sterile kits will focus on minimizing disease, preventing infection, reducing overall costs for our customers and achieving the best outcomes for children who are still growing; because kids are not just little adults,” said Nick Deeter, Chairman of the Board and CEO of WishBone Medical, in a press release.
“The large orthopedic companies ignore the pediatric market and focus solely on the adult market. There is still a lot of work to be done on behalf of our kids,” added Deeter.
WishBone Medical is developing new and innovative products that will address the needs of children such as: implants that correct deformities of long bones, sports related injuries, foot and ankle deformities, trauma, spinal and thoracic deformities, biologics and preventative body armor.
