As a senior product engineer for Arthrex, Rudraksh “Ricky” Khosla is responsible for the design and development of innovative surgical implants and instrumentation, from concept to product launch. But that’s just a portion of his job duties.

“I’m responsible for leading a team of engineers in multidisciplinary fields, such as quality assurance, sterilization, packaging and regulatory, to ensure that the devices being developed are safe and effective for clinical use,” he says. “My passion to create life-changing products to allow surgeons to treat patients better and help them to once again enjoy life to the fullest.”

Khosla was born and raised in Cincinnati and attended the University of Cincinnati, where
he earned a degree in biomedical engineering with a specialization in biomechanics. And although he may not be a native Floridian, Khosla has grown to love Southwest Florida and has become an integral member of the community.

What are your future aspirations?

I want to continue to develop innovative products that improve the quality of life of patients, as well
as manage and mentor younger engineers. I’m also looking forward to growing my community and continuing to find ways to help those in need.
