SEAN HENSLER, PA-C, MMS (NEUROSURGERY)
Hensler Surgical Products, LLC was founded by inventor and Neurosurgical Physician Assistant, Sean Hensler in 2011. Frustrated by the antiquated process and sheer time involved with autologous bone collection during surgery, Mr. Hensler set out to design a process and a product that reduced the cost associated with bone substitute, while simultaneously improving patient care by harvesting more of the patients own material for reincorporation within fusion procedures.
In addition to have performed over 2,000 neurosurgical cases alongside with Dr. Thomas Melin, Co-founder of Hensler Surgical Products, Mr. Hensler continues to work as an active Physician Assistant in Wilmington, NC and manage company operations, the quality management system, regulatory affairs, global sales and distribution of products offered by Hensler Surgical with the strong and proven assistance of the Hensler Surgical Office manager, Julia Tew.
Prior to founding Hensler Surgical, he served in several tours of duty overseas for the United States Marine Corps as a Hospital Corpsman in 1st Battalion, 2nd Marines, Camp Lejeune, NC, which he is very proud of. Mr. Hensler holds a Bachelor’s of Science degree from The University of North Florida and a double Masters of Medical Science and Physician Assistant degree from Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale.
Hensler Surgical Supports various charities, such as wounded warrior, Veteran Owned .. Veteran Grown, NC Children's Society, Liam Strong Charity, Doctors without borders, Greater Promise Elite Learning, and various other local charities for the community.
THOMAS MELIN, M.D. (NEUROSURGEON)
Thomas Melin, M.D. has over 20 years of experience in Neurosurgery. Having performed over 5,000 surgeries in his distinguished career, Dr. Melin has been in search of the “perfect” fusion material. After utilizing virtually every synthetic option on the market, he concluded that the use of the patient's own bone for fusion is the superior and the most economically conscience choice. The challenge has been to efficiently collect an adequate amount of autologous bone during the surgery.
As a practicing surgeon, Dr. Melin’s need for efficient and effective autologous bone collection inspired the creation of the HBP. Dr. Melin received his M.D. from The University of Kentucky and attended The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for his Neurosurgical Training.
