ABSTRACT
This article discusses the procedures required to implement new technology, surgical devices, and treatment modalities in the profession of orthopedics. Three primary ways that orthopedists can capitalize on their ideas are discussed, which include the relinquishment of an idea to a medical device company, the protection of his or her idea with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, or to join a patent licensing firm. Also discussed is the development of ideas, researching the idea for patent application, and the patent application process.
