About Internal Fixation Systems:
IFS is a medical technology company specializing in the manufacture and marketing of generically priced orthopedic and podiatric surgical implants. Our strategy is to offer high quality, cost effective surgical implants that are equivalent in quality, design, functionality and materials to the current industry "Gold Standards". We focus on products that no longer have patent protection, products that are used every day in surgery. This, along with our innovative modular design of surgery sets allows the company to have substantially lower R&D and FDA approval costs and also allows us to maintain substantially lower field inventory costs.
The company has FDA 510(k) approval for ten cannulated screw system products. Applications have been submitted for additional products including locking small fragment plates and locking distal radius plate along with corresponding instrument sets. We expect to receive FDA approval for these products in the second quarter of 2011 and that these products will be for sale by year-end.
IFS was started in 2006 and current customers include surgery center operators, hospitals and individual orthopedic surgeons.
The IFS management team is led by noted healthcare entrepreneur, Stephen Dresnick, MD, best known as the founder and CEO of Sterling Healthcare.
