Dr. JAVIER COLOMA
CHIEF MEDICAL OFFICER & CO-FOUNDER
Dr. Javier Coloma has been an orthopaedic surgeon for years and his interest and passion on improving how healthcare is provided during surgeries has kept him looking for problems and solutions in this field for a while. After successfully developing two different products that are now impacting the way surgeons operate, he has always wanted to find a more efficient way to perform distal locking in Intramedullary Surgeries.
His idea brought Drill Surgeries to life and he is now in charge of supervising the developments we do to introduce our device in hospitals in the best way possible, for patients and medical staff's benefit.
Dr. Javier Coloma is an orthopaedic surgeon at Hospital Arnau de Villanova, Spain, and a member of the prestigious SECOT, the Spanish Society of orthopaedic and traumatology surgery. He was awarded the Melbourne Scholarship to work in Australia in 2014 and he also works as a Consultant Orthopaedic surgeon in Spain.
In the past years, Javier has been volunteering around the world, operating in the Philippines or Cameroon, and he is working full time in the fight against Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Because improving healthcare cannot be done by a single person and every idea counts, Drill Surgeries grows thanks to the collaboration from experts in the industry, academia and professionals in the healthcare sector.
