Catching Up With... Armen Bakirtzian, BCS'03

Intellijoint Surgical Inc. was recently featured in The Globe and Mail's second-annual ranking of Canada's top growing companies.

The company is the brainchild of Armen Bakirtzian, BCS'03, who came up with the idea while working on a university design project in his final year at the University of Waterloo. He was inspired to develop a product to make hip replacement surgeries more accurate after discussions with his orthopaedic surgeon father.

The company, which operates out of Kitchener, ON, develops and sells surgical navigation solutions for joint replacements with the mission to "improve patients' lives by providing every surgeon with effective, easy-to-use technology."

Intellijoint Surgical Inc. placed 37th on the Globe and Mail's list of 400 companies this October for its three-year growth of 1,397%.

Congratulations to Armen and the whole Intellijoint Surgical Inc. team on this achievement!
