I have no doubt Jim will usher in a new phase of growth for our front-line company in ways that will benefit surgeons, patients, the military, and consumers alike.” Tiffany exits his CEO post at Medcura after more than five years of building the Company from concept to initial commercialization and will continue full time with the Company as the Executive Director and Chairman.Buck’s track record of leading world-class teams with next-generation technologies includes transforming businesses for long-term success and profitability.

Our technology’s inherent versatility permits platform expansions into highly differentiated product solutions, best illustrated in our new surgical and consumer product applications. I’m excited to guide Medcura through this next phase of rapid growth as we pivot to regulatory approvals for high-value implantable products and global commercialization.”Prior to this position, Buck served as the President and CEO of cancer imaging innovator ClearCut Medical.
