Audubon-based Globus Medical, a manufacturer of implants and other devices, is making a run at the orthopedic trauma market. The local company is isplaying its growing portfolio of trauma products at this week’s American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons’ annual meeting in New Orleans.
“We feel we can capitalize on our strengths of innovation and speed to market to bring game changing technology in the trauma market,” said Barclay Davis, vice president for orthopedic trauma at Globus, writes John George in the Philadelphia Business Journal.
The company said its trauma products are designed to treat a wide variety of fracture patterns and accommodates varying patient anatomies in the upper and lower extremities as well as hip and long bones.
“It has been impressive watching Globus move from design to development to deployment of their comprehensive trauma solutions line,” said Dr. Andrew N. Pollak, chief of orthopedics at the University of Maryland Medical System. “I have been very impressed with the ability of Globus’ engineers to translate surgeon ideas and concepts into functional and easy to use implants for a wide variety of fracture patterns.”
