I had the opportunity once again to attend the Wilson Sonsini Medical Device Conference which is held yearly at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. There were excellent panelists who discussed the medical device world from the aspects of development, market funding, and investments both nationally and internationally. There were panelists from a wide range of disciplines. It’s always very informative to see how the devices that may an have impact in Orthopedic Surgery and Upper Extremity care are faring and what the latest trends are. There were great networking opportunities for me this year, as always.
