Dr. Erik Kubiak, Chief of Orthopedic Trauma Surgery at the University Medical Center in Las Vegas, Nevada and Chairman and Co-Founder of CoNextions Medical stated, "Dan knows physicians around the world and has long worked side by side with orthopedic surgeons to launch new products, train surgeons, and has worked tirelessly to ensure patients receive the best medical technologies and care possible. While Stryker may lose a strategic asset, CoNextions will gain a seasoned and proven executive who fits perfectly into our culture. Dan has launched numerous technologies that have improved patient care across the globe. By adding Dan Gruppo to our executive team, we continue to meet our strategic goal of building CoNextions Medical into a global company with revolutionary new products and technologies to improve patient outcomes and reduce complications."
Dan Gruppo stated, "It is never easy to leave a large company with a track record of success, such as Stryker, but after meeting the people at CoNextions Medical and seeing the CoNextions TRTM tendon approximation and soft tissue repair system and their future pipeline, it was clear that I had to join the team. The soft tissue repair markets have not seen innovation like the CoNextions TR™ in decades, and certainly nothing comes close to the innovative and easy to use tendon approximation system developed by the remarkable team at CoNextions Medical, Inc. CoNextions brings to the world of orthopedic surgery a very tangible opportunity to improve patient care, something I have sought to accomplish during my career of over 15 years in orthopedic surgery." Additionally, Dan stated, "The R&D pipeline of products and opportunities at CoNextions Medical, together with the CoNextions TR™, is extremely compelling, and I look forward to August 1st when I join the CoNextions team to participate in commercializing revolutionary products and building a strong global distribution network."
