The Talent Around the Table: Jose Morcuende

See the December Issue of the Rotarian Magazine (page 11) for an article about club member Dr. Jose Morcuende and his work to promote the clubfoot nonsurgical solution created by Dr. Ignacio Ponseti that provides hope for about 200,000 children globally with clubfoot each year.  Go to: http://therotarianmagazine.com/the-talent-around-the-table-jose-morcuende/

Medical Device Inventions & Start-up Companies Are Part of the Iowa Economic Landscape

Usha Balakrishnan introduced Dr. Matt Howard.  Dr. Howard is professor of Neurosurgery and serves as chair and executive officer of the department.  Dr. Howard spoke about his experiences in medical device inventions and start-up companies.  His specific success is with the company Stereotaxis, Inc. that is used in “magnetic” neurosurgery. 

Dr. Howard spoke how fortunate he was to have mentors along the way who encouraged him and his fellow students to think about how to do things better and to invent new processes and instruments.  He is implementing this same philosophy at Iowa in the Department of Neurosurgery.  It is expected that residents and graduate students will invent! 

Dr. Howard sees a positive future for Iowa medical device business.
