Indiana medtech startups

Saw a post by Jon Speer of Creo Quality ( reflecting on the closure by Hologic of its Indiana business that was originally represented by Suros Surgical, which Hologic acquired in 2006.

For the sake of curiosity, I took a peek at our Medtech Startups Database to see what other startups we have recorded in Indiana.  All of these were founded within the past eight years:

  • Altiss Medical LLC (Indianapolis) — Medical device manufacturing.
  • Arthroplasty Innovations LLC (Carmel) — Devices to facilitate knee replacement
  • Biospine, LLC (Columbia City) — Surgical instruments, including blunt dissection and tissue elevation instrument.
  • DTherapeutcs, LLC (Zionsville) — Developing technologies to visualize vascular junctions in order to enhance ablation in treatment of atrial fibrillation.
  • FlowCo, Inc. (Indianapolis) — Catheter-based device designed to provide real-time feedback to interventional cardiologists on lumen cross-sectional area in order to assist in sizing and delivering stents.
  • ICONACY Orthopedic Implants, LLC (Warsaw) — Orthopedic implants.
  • Nanovis, Inc. (Columbia City) — Nanotechnology-based products with appications in orthopedics, neurosurgery, cardiology and dentistry.
  • OrthoPediatrics, Corp. (Warsaw) — Orthopedic devices for pediatric and other small stature patients.
  • Quantum OPS, Inc. (Fort Wayne) — Patient positioning systems for the orthopedic surgical suite.
  • SonarMed, Inc. (West Lafayette) — Technologies to facilitate intubation.
  • UroMend LLC (Marion) — – Male urinary incontinence device.
  • VOT, LLC (Warsaw) — Tibial prosthesis.
  • Zorion Medical, Inc. (Indianapolis) — Bioabsorbable drug-eluting stent using novel biomaterials, drug and drug delivery technology.

(Note, please, that I have not revisited this list to update any changes in location, ownership or product/technology focus. I will make a note to do so!)

This is respectable number of companies focused on medtech alone and I anticipate that more will follow (a couple of these were founded since 2010).

  1. Thanks for the blog love!

    I consider myself “in the know” when it comes to med device startups in Indiana. I only recognize five of the companies on your list. Guess I have a little bit of research to do.

  2. You’re welcome.

    For what it’s worth, I am better at finding startups at very early stages than I am at updating them when they evolve, change names, get acquired or go out of business, so as far as I know the five you recognize may be the only active ones.
