San Francisco, CA. August 30, 2021 – Kaliber Labs has announced that Dr. Mark Getelman, a leader in the field of minimally invasive surgery and the current president of the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA), has joined the company’s Surgeon Advisory Board.

“We are incredibly honored to be working with Dr. Getelman,” Kaliber CEO Ray Rahman said. “His experience and skill will be an incredible asset as we continue to develop Kaliber’s surgical software solutions, and we know that he shares Kaliber’s mission to make a material difference in surgeons and patients’ lives.”

Kaliber’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Richard Angelo, echoed these sentiments. “Dr. Getelman is a distinguished surgeon whose expertise and skill are widely recognized within the orthopedic community,” Dr. Angelo said. “We are thrilled to welcome him to the Kaliber team.”
