Company Strengthens and Aligns Organization for Future Growth
Mr. Blain brings more than 20 years of experience in orthopedics, including hip replacements, knee replacements, trauma and spine products to his new role. He previously served as President of Spinal Elements and was a co-founder of that organization prior to Amendia’s acquisition of Spinal Elements in April of this year. The combined company was recently renamed Spinal Elements.
Chris Fair, CEO of Spinal Elements said, “Jason co-founded Spinal Elements in California and is chiefly responsible for their commitment to innovation of premium products and technologies for nearly 15 years. His track record of bringing best in class products to the marketplace will accelerate the combined company’s growth toward becoming the preferred spinal solutions provider to our clinicians and independent distributors.” Fair is looking forward to working closely with Jason in an effort to build a stronger connection with surgeons and the products they develop.
Blain commented regarding his new role, “I look forward to taking on these expanded responsibilities as we continue to drive Spinal Elements toward being the preferred spine surgery solutions provider. We have a number of disruptive technologies that we will be bringing to the market in the coming months as we improve the operations of our recently-combined companies. This is an exciting time to be a part of the organization.”
Prior to founding Spinal Elements, Jason had roles of increasing responsibility in product development, manufacturing, regulatory affairs and quality assurance with Smith & Nephew, Alphatec, and Nuvasive. He has a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Christian Brothers University in Memphis, TN.
