This series of articles focuses on a different paradigm for bringing new ideas to market, one in which you as a surgeon inventor retain control over designs, aggressively pursue milestones on your own (such as issuance of a patent, testing of prototypes or obtaining a regulatory clearance) and build value before presenting them to industry for possible licensing or sale. Why would you consider this option? Why not just take your sketch straight to a big company? One of the best reasons to pursue development on your own is that the value of your idea can increase exponentially compared to the costs of development—if the process is managed properly.

Traditionally, as a surgeon inventor, you may have waited for one of the large implant companies to recognize the value of your new product idea. Then the game began by negotiating timelines, team structure and ultimately, your royalty agreement. While this process has been rewarding for some, it has proven to be disappointing for others. Is there a better way? What would it look like to maintain control of your design, timeline and budgets while hitting milestones and advancing your idea? And what if you could do this while creating intellectual property along the way to build exponential value? Read More...
