Raleigh, NC, March 10, 2023 – The American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association (ACPA) is pleased to announce KLS Martin is once again a Platinum Supporter for ACPA’s Annual Meeting.

“ACPA’s Annual Meeting is one of the highlights of our year, and we truly appreciate our partnership with ACPA. It has been a busy year for all of us, and I am glad we have this opportunity to get together again, in-person, at this outstanding event,” said Will Ticoras, KLS Martin LP’s President.

KLS Martin is a company dedicated to innovative products inspired by patient needs. Our purpose continues to be to support and advance the practice of craniomaxillofacial surgery. After years of consistently being recognized as the world market leader in craniofacial distraction osteogenesis, KLS Martin has again solidified that position. Last year KLS Martin received a landmark clearance for its IPS® Distraction System.

This adds to a broad product portfolio of products that have fulfilled their customers’ needs through distraction osteogenesis, IPS planning, and revolutionized resorbable fixation with the SonicWeld Rx system.

“As we look forward to celebrating ACPA’s 80th Annual Meeting, we know that a large part of our success is due to longstanding, value-added partnerships, and KLS Martin has shown unwavering support of ACPA for many years,” said ACPA Executive Director Adam Levy, CAE. “It makes perfect sense that the team at KLS Martin would once again join us at the Annual Meeting as a Platinum Supporter, and we are grateful for their continued partnership, and dedication, to the cleft and craniofacial community.”

ACPA’s 2023 Annual Meeting, May 2 – 6, will honor ACPA’s past, challenge the present, and inspire providers for the future. The 2023 program features sessions on advances in research and clinical and team-driven care, including poster sessions, panel presentations, and study sessions.
