Mark A. Reiley, MD
Inventor & Founder
Dr. Mark Reiley is a board certified orthopedic surgeon with 20 years of experience creating ground breaking products for the orthopedic marketplace. He is widely known as the inventor of successful devices used in orthopedic and spinal surgery.
Dr. Reiley co-founded Kyphon, which revolutionized the treatment of vertebral compression fractures of the spine. With a presence in 43 countries and 5,000 annual surgeries, the kyphoplasty technique has changed the standard of care worldwide.
Following Kyphon Dr. Reiley developed the Archus Othopedics TFAS system. This novel spinal implant is designed to treat spinal stenosis, a condition in which degenerative changes in the facet joints result in compression of spinal nerves producing neurological symptoms in the legs.
Dr. Reiley then turned his attention to the foot and ankle, developing two revolutionary treatment options for patients suffering from foot and ankle pain. He created an intramedullary small bone fusion system (ENDO-FUSETM) used throughout the foot to eliminate the pain of arthritic joints. He also designed an innovative Total Ankle Replacement (TAR), which is the first and only total ankle replacement system to use intramedullary guidance. The TAR system offers a level of precision never before seen in the ankle marketplace, and was quickly established as the most versatile and customizable option for patients. The INBONE Total AnkleTM and ENDO-FUSE System were acquired by Wright Medical in April of 2008. Dr. Reiley subsequently started SI-BONE in the Spring of 2008.
Dr. Reiley has received a variety of medical awards and given keynote speeches at spine symposia worldwide. Dr. Reiley has published a number of articles and books (both fiction and non-fiction), and continues to invent devices to further advance medical care worldwide.
Dr. Reiley earned his M.D. at George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C., and completed both his orthopedic residency and fellowship at the University of California at San Francisco. He was a founding member of Berkeley Orthopedics Surgical group, where he practiced for over 20 years. Dr. Reiley recently retired from active practice in January of 2009.
