NEW HAVEN, Conn. (PRWEB) March 17, 2021
Biorez Inc., a New Haven start-up advancing tendon and ligament healing, today announced that medical device industry veteran, Nicholas Pachuda, has been appointed to its Board of Directors.
A Podiatric Surgeon by training, Dr. Pachuda has spent the last 20 years in commercial leadership positions for DePuy Synthes (a Johnson & Johnson company), Arthrex, and a number of startups including Small Bone Innovations (acquired by Stryker) and Scient’x Spine (acquired by Alphatec).
“I have spent most of my career evaluating new technologies in orthopedics and have long awaited an implant that can meaningfully improve soft tissue healing,” said Dr. Pachuda. “Biorez has developed a regenerative scaffold that can reinforce soft tissue repair, improve healing, and naturally resorb over time. Based on the company’s progress and preclinical results, I am excited to join the Board during this important stage for the company.”
“We are pleased to welcome Nick to our Board,” added Kevin Rocco President and CEO of Biorez. “He has valuable market experience across a wide spectrum of companies, from startups to market leaders. His addition to the Board is well-timed as we prepare to launch the BioBrace Implant in the U.S. market later this year.”
Nicholas Pachuda will join existing Biorez directors Richard Emmitt (The Vertical Group), Paul Hermes (Independent), Sacha Levy (NY Angels), Dan Wagner (Connecticut Innovations), and Kevin Rocco (Founder and CEO).
