Latest From Stryker Corp.
Scott Zellner, senior director at DePuy Synthes, and orthopedic surgeon Joel Matta, who has been collaborating with DePuy since 2004, have long advocated for the anterior approach to total hip replacement, touting the many benefits of the minimally invasive surgery. Medtech Insight sat down with Zellner and Matta at this year's American Association of Orthopedic Surgeons' (AAOS) conference in Las Vegas to discuss the company's latest technologies designed for the anterior approach to total hip replacement, what's next, and to hear Matta's view on the widely discussed role of robotic-assisted surgeries.
Medtech Insight's Results Recap covers major device trial results appearing on MedDeviceTracker. This is a special edition covering trial data presented during the first three days of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons Annual Meeting, held in Las Vegas March 12-16, including presentations on devices from Stryker, Miach, Myoscience, CyMedica, and Reflexion Health.
AAOS 2019: OSSO VR Develops VR Training Tool For Smith & Nephew's NAVIO Robot, And More On Orthorobotics
Osso VR partnered with Smith & Nephew to develop a VR training tool that will be showcased at this year's American Association of Orthopedic Surgeons' (AAOS) conference, taking place in Las Vegas from March 12-16. Orthopedic robotic systems continue to draw high interest from surgeons. The recent US FDA clearance of Zimmer Biomet's ROSA total knee replacement system will add competition to the current market dominated by Stryker's MAKO and Smith & Nephew's NAVIO.
Reported sales and earnings from the big publicly traded orthopedics device companies showed mostly slow growth in 2018, but NuVasive and Stryker reported high single-digit growth while, Smith & Nephew grew in the low single-digits, fueling reports that Smith & Nephew may try to buy NuVasive.
