The ESC works closely with OrthAlign’s management team and product development group, bringing products to market built upon proprietary, sensor-based surgical navigation technologies. The company’s flagship product, KneeAlign, uses instrument-mounted sensor navigation to provide real-time guidance during primary total knee replacement procedures. OrthAlign launched UniAlign in early 2017, bringing the accuracy and consistency of KneeAlign to partial knee replacement surgery, opening opportunities for customers to bring impactful computer navigation into surgery centers.
“We are so pleased to have Dr. Haas join our very talented and engaged board of surgeon advisors, and to bring with him his wealth of experience and history of innovation in this space,” said Eric B. Timko, chairman and CEO of OrthAlign. “As we continue to expand our platform of indications, we look forward to evolving KneeAlign and building a suite of applications that make OrthAlign’s technologies the go-to solution for their ease of use, economics, and clinical results.”
Haas speaks nationally and internationally on hip and knee topics, and has contributed to more than 90 orthopedic publications. He is well known for development of ground-breaking surgical technique and instrumentation for performing minimally invasive knee replacement; along with development of high performance knee replacement systems. Haas was educated and trained at Harvard, Cornell and the University of Rochester.
"I am excited to join OrthAlign’s outstanding clinical and management teams as they continue to expand and more broadly apply their proven sensor technology,” said Haas. “OrthAlign has innovative products, and I look forward to working with them as they expand their platform."
