Orthopaedic innovation is important to Dr Kieser and he is involved in a number of product developments. Orthopaedics is a constantly evolving discipline and there is a strong desire to both innovate and to optimise. A vital part of such aspiration is to understand the history of joint prosthesis, of spinal fixation, and the various other orthopaedic solutions that bring pain relief and mobility to patients. Essential to the desire for advancement is the need to balance the lessons and limitations of the past with the legitimate desire to exploit new technologies. 3D Printing, modified surfaces & materials, and new planning algorithms offer a bright development future.
Dr David Kieser owns a medical design and development company (Kieser Medical Ltd) that is at the forefront of optimising surgical outcomes using advanced technologies to develop new medical products.
