THINK Surgical, Inc., an innovator in the field of orthopedic surgical robots, today announced the appointment of Chris Fronk as the Vice President of U.S. Sales. Mr. Fronk’s nearly two decades of experience in selling enabling technology in Orthopedics, makes him the ideal person to head up the U.S. sales team at THINK Surgical.
