Dr. William Casey FoxPresident, CEO, CTO, and DirectorWilliam Casey Fox, Ph.D., P.E.
Dr. Fox conducted pioneering research in bone healing and osteoporosis while at Southwest Research Institute, The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, and the Texas Biomedical Research Institute and made this a foundational element in two of the companies he founded, BioMedical Enterprises, Inc. (BME) and Agile Manufacturing, Inc. Building products and infrastructure with contract service and Federal, State, and County grant revenue he lead BME in the introduction and establishment of the U.S. market for shape-changing bone-compressing nitinol staples. This success resulted in the sale of BME to Depuy/Synthes, Johnson & Johnson Companies.
A prolific inventor he has had over 35 patents issued in the U.S. and Europe and published tens of articles. Skilled at medical product development, he and his teams have received 20 FDA clearances to market and commercialized the orthopaedic products stemming from his inventions. He has held engineering, advisory board, and adjunct faculty positions over the last 30 years at the institutions listed above as well as the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Alabama, Birmingham.Â
Dr. Fox founded and leads Metric Medical Devices, Inc. to broaden and advance the shape-changing bone-compressing orthopaedic implants he pioneered at BME. These next-generation nitinol staples and finger and toe fixation implants enter the market Dr. Fox established. These products are being followed by a disruptive minimally invasive external bone fixator based on these same implant shape-changing concepts. This LINKâ„¢ External Fixator will allow bone fixation and compression without open surgery. This is a disruptive concept in bone fixation and may, due to its minimally invasive technique, allow surgeons to treat more bone fractures in their office versus the hospital.
