White Light Medical was founded in 2012 by a team of Johns Hopkins biomedical engineering students in the Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design consisting of Anvesh Annadanam, Ravi Gaddipati, Luis Herrera, Brad Isaacs, Eric Xie, Clay Andrews, Adarsha Malla, and Erica Schwarz. The team consults with a team of advisors, including Chetan Bettegowda, MD, PhD, (Assistant Professor, Departments of Neurological Surgery and Oncology, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine) and Sheng-fu Larry Lo, MD, (Assistant Resident, Department of Neurosurgery, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine)
Since then, White Light has focused on the development of AccuSpine, a smarter, safer pedicle probe that aims to reduce the incidence of cortical bone breaches in spinal fusion surgeries and reduce patient and surgeon exposure to harmful radiation.
White Light also collaborates with business associates around the country including Akanksha Mittal, John Kim, Carolina Herrera, Sean Lee, Reed Geisler, Andre Conde, Alejandra MacDougall, and Sarthak Patel.
Together, the members of White Light are dedicated to illuminating the field of spinal surgery.
