The biggest challenge for a physician-inventor is to surpass the Criticisms of Intellectual Property in patenting medical devices. More often, societal views on intellectual property defeat the marketability of a physician’s medical device invention.

Due to rising of novel diseases, some physicians who work in Oncology and Orthopedics have remodeled Surgical Equipments like Prosthetics, Orthotics, Robotics, and Spine for Minimally Invasive and Endoscopic Procedures;

Some physicians have innovated Drug-Eluting Devices and Stents, Valves, & Loading Devices, and Embolic Protection to cure Blood Vessels and support Peripheral Vascular in treating Sleep Apnea; Some physicians have redesigned Sterile Field Devices, and Pacemakers & Electrical Devices, and Biocompatible Polymers and Coating for treating Cardiovascular disease and improving Aesthetic and Implants. 

How to patent a Medical Device

Invention Disclosure or Intellectual Property Disclosure

Medical devices are your intellectual properties. Thus, the first step in patenting a medical device is disclosing your invention, including:

– The technical and specific details of your medical device;

– The sketch or the prototype of your developed invention; and 

– The potential manufacturers or licensees involved in the selling or making of your invention or design.
