In 1999, David Brumfield joined the Medtronic Spine and Biologics team as Vice President of Product Development. As an expert in orthopedics, extremities and spine related products, this experience was a natural fit for the seasoned medical devices inventor. In this role, Brumfield took a hands-on approach to developing data-driven new products for Medtronic. With each device, the VP kept real people in mind; constantly reminding himself, as well as the fellow members of his team, that these devices are so much more than products. Medtronic’s devices help solve some of the most complex healthcare challenges. Keeping those individuals in mind while developing products for Medtronic not only helped Brumfield to craft more productive devices, but also enriched the professional experience for him.
