Ortho Regenerative Technologies (CSE:ORTH) appointed Dr. Jacques Toueg to its scientific advisory board (SAB).
Dr. Toueg, a practicing orthopedic surgeon and director of the Montreal Institute for Special Surgery, specializes in sports medicine and arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder and knee. He is the chief medical officer of the Rogers’s Cup and the National Tennis training center in Montreal.
Dr. Toueg has treated numerous athletes from national teams, professional boxers, as well as a number of players from the National Hockey League, the Major Junior Hockey League of Quebec and the Canadian Football League.
"On behalf of everyone at Ortho RTi, I would like to welcome Jacques to our team," Dr. Brent Norton, executive chairman and CEO, said in a statement.
"He joins Ortho RTi’s SAB at a time where the sports medicine community is increasingly recognizing the potential of our Ortho-R hybrid implants to offer surgeons and patients the ability to actually fix soft tissue injuries instead of just treating the often-devastating complications associated with them,” he added.
Dr. Toueg’s strong clinical and research experience, combined with his extensive network of contacts in both amateur and professional sports, should prove to be a tremendous asset, Dr. Norton said.
