“I always go in directions where everyone thinks you can’t do something. I’m not a follower. I like to blaze new ground, and I like to take on hard challenges.”

When it comes to biodesign and medical device innovation, Josh Makower takes a different approach. Unimpressed by incremental improvements and copycat products, Josh and his team insist on filling gaps in the market by pioneering breakthrough solutions where true need exists — all while considering the full length and breadth of the patient/physician experience and relationship.

It’s this methodology that has shaped his highly impressive career as a biotech, inventor, founder, entrepreneur, investor, and professor — a career marked by serial success, in which innovation and breakthroughs are the expected norm.

Among numerous other titles and credits, he is a Stanford professor of Medicine & Bioengineering, Director and Co-founder of the Stanford Byers Center for Biodesign, and Founder and Exec Chair of medical device incubator ExploraMed.

In his hour-long interview by Dr. Grant Stevens, Mr. Makower takes us through a half dozen of his most notable successes, each of which would suffice to define a career. He also delves into the future of biodesign and unpacks how his recent entry into aesthetics could entirely transform the treatment of cellulite.
