HyProCure® was invented by Michael E. Graham, DPM, FACFAS, FAENS. In his practice, Dr. Graham specialized in the correction of foot and ankle instability. Recognizing the significant limitations of the sinus tarsi implants on the market, he developed HyProCure®. The device received FDA approval on September 16, 2004 and the first HyProCure® placement took place on September 22, 2004. As more and more doctors and patients gained awareness of both the condition and treatment, GraMedica®, global orthopedic medical device company and maker of HyProCure®, experienced rapid growth.
