    Innovation is a commonly seen trait amongst neurosurgeons. This course will outline how to parlay a novel idea into a finished business/product/company. We will feature speakers who have a variety of experience in translating a series of neurosurgical ideas into patents, products, and companies. The course will relay how to optomize an idea, collaborate with industry, mitigate risk, and be successful in an area outside of neurosurgical practice.  

    Learning Objectives

    Upon completion of this symposium, participants will be able to:

    • Outline the device development pathway
    • Describe the key negotiations necessary to bring an idea from ideation to first in human implantation
    • Describe the major roadblocks between a physician and successful development of an idea
