Led by Dr. Julio Palmaz and a proven management team of executives, physicians, scientists, and engineers, Palmaz Scientific was created in 2008 with a vision to provide a technology platform that innovates medical device science. Today this vision is realized with a potentially game changing nanotechnology platform applying a physical vapor deposition process to produce more reliable implantable prosthetic devices. This technology is supported by nearly 118 issued patents and over 109 active patent filings in process.
Two decades ago, Dr. Julio Palmaz revolutionized cardiac care with the development of the first commercially successful balloon expandable intravascular stent. The Palmaz® Stent has already positively impacted the lives of millions of people, and Palmaz Scientific is once again poised to expand that impact on the lives of patients. By leveraging its knowledge and resources to create innovative implantable prosthetic devices that enhance the healing process and improve patient outcomes, Palmaz is fulfilling its important mission to “create safer, more predictable implantable prosthetic devices improving patient outcomes and quality of life”.
