Do you ever wonder which aspects of a 510(k) submission the FDA scrutinizes the most? Or what the likelihood is of becoming involved in litigation after product launch? Maybe you just want to know: “How do I go about testing my spinal device?” Accutek answers all of these questions, and more, at our inaugural “Lunch & Learn”.
Our event is independent from the official program as planned by the NASS Annual Meeting Program Committee.
Accutek is pleased to extend this invitation to all spinal device designers, manufacturers, or other interested parties.
