Abstract

The orthopaedic device industry is an ever changing market, often guided by creative surgeons who have the common goal of creating a solution to a problem. While being a surgeon-inventor can be both a challenging and rewarding process, there are several steps that the individual must follow to create intellectual property. This article serves as a guide to the novice surgeon-inventor; intended to be used as an early stage reference for those interested in taking their "solution to a problem" to the device industry.
