Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) Evidence Based (EBI) Venture Validation

The challenge

The Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) is recognised as a world leader in musculoskeletal medicine and a pioneer of many new procedures through its ‘state of the art’ research capabilities.

One example where the clinicians and scientists had worked together to develop innovative solutions was in Evidence Based Implants (EBI), initially for the knee but with a development pipeline including other orthopaedic surgical areas such as the hip. HSS were seeking to validate and refine the strategy for addressing the evidence-based implant market and advise on how best to launch a commercial venture.
