In the middle of the 20th century, when the idea of joint replacement was, well, just an idea, the founder of BioPro, Dr Charles Townley, believed that his patients should be able to lead pain-free lives.
As a young physician in his residency, he began sketching implants for various body parts and designing the various tools and implements he would eventually need to perform joint replacement surgeries.
Key to his earliest implant designs — some of which are still used today — was creating an implant that replicated the human body as closely as possible. It really wasn’t rocket science…it was just good anatomical science.
Though joint replacement has come a long way in the past 60-plus years, BioPro still believes strongly in the idea that drove its founder to design implants: the key to joint reconstruction is restoration of anatomy. Dr Townley called this “Design by Reason.”
Today, based on that principle, BioPro continues to develop new products and technologies that complement patient anatomy, are simple to implant and are reproducible from patient to patient. BioPro products are always produced with the patient in mind.
