Dr. Richard Fulton Steps Down as Chief Medical Officer

Dr. Richard Fulton announced today that he is stepping down from his role as Chief Medical Officer at Telluride Medical Partners.

An esteemed medical practitioner who practiced radiology and interventional radiology for 30 years prior to joining TMP, Dr. Fulton is a prolific inventor with 50-plus issued patents as well as a number of successfully commercialized medical devices including Capture Vascular’s MegaVac Mechanical Thrombectomy System. He has dedicated his post practice life to inventing novel, easy-to-use, and cost-effective devices and products designed to address a wide-range of medical conditions and treatment dilemmas.

“We are grateful to have had Dr. Fulton as part of the TMP team and respect his decision to spend more time with his family”, states Eric Wells, CEO of TMP.

Dr. Fulton will continue to sit on the board for both Capture Vascular and Awestruck Dental, two companies he founded over the last half decade. A true idea-man and passionate inventor, Dr. Fulton will also continue to work on new medical devices outside of TMP.

“We wish Dr. Fulton all of the best of luck with his future endeavors and we thank him for his time serving as Chief Medical Officer at Telluride Medical Partners,” says Wells.
