Show Notes

In this episode, Marc and Mo are joined by special guest Ed Harvey (tenured professor at McGill University and Past-President of the Canadian Orthopaedic Association) in a lively discussion on the topic of innovation in the field of orthopaedic surgery. The discussion touches on a number of related questions:

  • Invention is often confused with innovation. What is the difference? 
  • What is the phenotype of a surgeon-innovator, and how does such an individual differ from a surgeon-scientist or surgeon-educator?
  • What are the necessary skills and qualities of the surgeon-innovator? How can we identify individuals with these skills, and how can we motivate individuals to develop them? Are people born with these skills, and can these skills be taught? 
  • When is the right time to innovate? Are you ever too young or too old to innovate?
  • How does the concept of value relate to the concept of innovation? What are the roles of the “3 Ps” (Patient, Physician, and Payor) in achieving commercialization?
  • How does a surgeon-innovator define “success”? 
  • Why is it important to have an efficient and effective team during the commercialization process? How does the team change over time?
  • What kind of expertise is needed to navigate the regulatory issues related to innovation?
  • What are investors and venture capitalists (VCs) ultimately looking for when evaluating an invention?
