ConforMIS Launches Knee Implant

Burlington, MA-based ConforMIS, which custom-builds implants for less-invasive knee surgery and is in the midst of an expansion push, today announced the commercial launch of an implant for partial knee replacement. The device was approved by the FDA in 2005 but, as I mentioned when I profiled ConforMIS last fall, the company has taken the unusual tack of performing additional clinical trials on each of its approved devices before marketing them.
