Martha Shadan headed Plymouth, Minn.–based Rotation Medical, a private company sold to Smith & Nephew in December 2017, just three years after launching its regenerative shoulder repair treatment. Bob White has been through two exits, selling privately owned TYRX, a New Jersey-based maker of surgical infection prevention products, to Medtronic in 2014 for an up-front cash payment of $160 million, and public company Entellus Medical of Plymouth, Minn. in February for $668 million to Stryker. Founded in 2006, Entellus makes a family of minimally invasive balloon device products, including its flagship Xpress device, that are designed to treat blocked sinuses.
Shadan and White spoke at the DeviceTalks Minnesota event this week in St. Paul.
At DeviceTalks Boston, Tyler Shultz will give attendees an inside look at Theranos and how he was able to sound the alarm after he realized the company was falling apart. Shultz will take attendees behind the story that everyone is talking about: the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her diagnostic company, Theranos.
Join Shultz and 1,000+ medical device professionals at the 8th annual DeviceTalks Boston.
