History

DGIMED ORTHO, Inc., was founded in 2008 by Dan W. Gladney to develop and commercialize the DISTALOCK™ IM NAIL AND DRILL SYSTEM.  Our system uses an innovative approach to facilitate the accurate placement of the distal locking screws used during intramedullary nailing procedures, and is designed to improve the surgeon’s ability to quickly and accurately place these locking screws while minimizing the use of intra-operative x-ray. Procedure time is reduced as a result, which may lower costs and reduce radiation exposure for the orthopedic surgeon, the patient, and the operating room staff.
Dr. Ramon Gustilo, M.D., is the inventor of the DISTALOCK™ DRILL.  Dr. Gustilo is a former Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at the University of Minnesota, and was a founding member and the first President of the Orthopaedic Trauma Association.  He has received national and international recognition in the areas of orthopedic surgery, research, publication and education development.
