First Leaf Capital Invests in Eclipse Orthopaedics

Eclipse Orthopaedics is developing a handheld x-ray-guided orthopaedic drill to simplify a surgical procedure that is currently difficult for surgeons who are not trauma specialists. The device also offers lower x-ray radiation exposure for the surgical team and eliminates reliance on a C-arm and radiological technician.

Since getting to know David I am confident he has the relevant expertise, the connections to industry, and the personal character to succeed in this venture. I love that his creative innovation is grounded in practical application — starting with making one surgical procedure simpler and safer. I’m excited that Elevate Ventures and First Leaf Capital have partnered with David to move Eclipse forward.
