Life-Changing Medical Invention: Build a Successful Enterprise and a New World (Paperback)
In Life-Changing Medical Invention, Dr. John Allen Pacey offers insight into the high-impact world of operating room innovation. Physicians today have the opportunity to revolutionize the healthcare industry by inventing new medical platforms to improve patient care and reduce costs. As a Vascular and General Surgeon himself, Dr. Pacey brings 15 years of innovative experience, having guided the invention of 33 GlideScope variants and 6 aperture video retractor variants for surgeons as well as the invention of supportive tools. You'll learn about... - Passion and life-changing "Eureka" moments experienced by great inventors. - Creating an idea is followed by a ten-plus-year period of "execution" during which one must entrain money, great people, and build a new world for all. - The profound importance of "Mentoring" and "Know thy Customer". - Planning unique invention to avoid "me too" ideas that fail to add value. - Learning how to create a " Blue Ocean Opportunity" and sell to real customers for real money so that you can exploit your passion further. - The benefit of sweat equity, frugality, and bootstrapping to pull through the "valley of death" and benefit of persistence to "never surrender". If you are a physician with a patentable idea or a student hoping to become an inventor, this book will provide examples of those who persisted and won.
