What Our Customers Have to Say

As an inventor with limited manufacturing knowledge I have found the team at Signature extremely helpful in realising my goals for implant design.

David Little, Westmead Children's Hospital

Travaillant avec Signature Orthopaedics depuis maintenant près de 2 ans, j’ai changé quant à mes impressions sur l’industrie de la chirurgie orthopédique. J’ai retrouvé le compagnonnage qui existait il y a de nombreuses années avant l’essor des GRANDES firmes, avec une relation productive, bénéficiant aux 2 parties, voire amicale. Merci pour le dynamisme et la fraicheur de toutes les équipes de Signature.

Dr VENET Guillaume, Chef de Service Chirurgie Orthopédique et Traumatologique
