|Dr Gary Michelson threaded spinal cage verses Dr George Bagby basket made 20 years earlier|
I knew that Gary Michelson stole his only valuable invention the threaded spinal cage from a horse veterinarian. I read about it in an orthopedic magazine. I didn't realize that this fact is very widely known. The original doctors just wanted to save the life of a horse. They weren't looking at money. Bagby made and used one of his first baskets in 1977. This is 20 years BEFORE Gary Michelson patented the device. In fact Gary Michelson patented the device without actually making or using it. It wasn't developed and used until later. Gary Michelson merely stole Bagby's idea and ran to the patent office before he and a human doctor could patent it. This invention is the one that made Gary all the money.
"Orthopedics and Veterinary Medicine History It’s not unheard of to have orthopedic innovations come from veterinary medicine. The first interbody cage, “Bagby’s Basket” was invented by George Bagby, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon several decades ago. It was used on Triple Crown Winner Seattle Slew, who had been diagnosed with “Wobbler’s Syndrome.” Bagby worked with a veterinary specialist and implanted his “basket” into Seattle Slew’s spine and packed it with the horse’s own bone graft. Hence, the first fusion of a spine using a cage. Stephen Kuslich, M.D., then converted the cage for human use. Gary Michelson, M.D. later patented the cages used by Medtronic plc today."
Here's a great article about the evolution of the interbody device the spinal cage.
