Darrick Lo, M.Eng.

Design Engineer

Darrick Lo's interests in orthopaedics began at Cornell University under the guide of Professors Donald Bartel and Jeremy Rawlinson. Within a joint partnership program, Darrick served as a research assistant at the Hospital for Special Surgery. After completing his Masters Degree in Cornell Engineering, he returned to HSS to continue a full-time career as a Design Engineer in the Department of Biomechanics (Timothy Wright, PhD, Director). Since then, Darrick has helped integrate finite element analysis into the Device Development program, successfully completed the development of a unicondylar knee prosthesis, the BalanSys™ UNI (Mathys Medical Ltd., Switzerland), and is a co-developer of the Integrated™ Spine System (Ortho Development®, Utah).
