Spinal Concepts

Spinal Concepts
Austin, Texas
Founded: 1996

Why It's Fierce: Spinal Concepts is one of the few independent developers of fixation devices for the fast growing spinal fusion market. The company has a strong intellectual property position with 39 patents in the U.S. and 22 international patents. Former Deputy President Jeffrey Binder and his team of experienced managers should continue turning this impressive patent position into profitable new products.

What to expect in 2003: It may be a matter of time -- and the right price -- before the company is snatched up by a larger competitor.
