2) Monitor and Support Implant Recalls and/or Advisory Notices

3) Improved Orthopaedic Patient Care

By the Numbers...

Hip and knee implants account for more than 85% of the joint reconstruction and replacement market.

If U.S. revision rates were cut by just 2%, Medicare could save more than $65 million.
