About Brian Thornes
Coming from a medical family, his father was an oncologist and immunologist, Brian studied medicine in Trinity before interning in the Meath and Adelaide Hospitals. After a year in Brisbane, he returned to Ireland to commence his orthopaedic training, working in many of the hospitals around the country.
In 2005, he quit the orthopaedic scheme to try his luck in business. (2-3 years short of becoming a consultant). Then in 2007, came his light bulb moment for the second product – X-Bolt for the treatment of hip fractures – and in 2018 he got FDA approval for the first generation of the product. Since then, further developments have been made with the introduction of a full portfolio in titanium based products for other anatomical areas in 2021.
