Minor orthopedic implants include implants used in shoulder, wrist, ankle and foot joints. These implants are used to restore joint function (movement), and relieve pain.

Minor orthopedic joint replacement surgery for shoulder, wrist, ankle and foot is growing because of the high incidence of arthritis and fractures.  Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are the major causes for joint replacement surgery including minor orthopedic joints. The other cause for joint replacement surgery is failed previous joint replacement surgery. The purpose of joint replacement surgery is to restore joint motion for activities of daily living and to alleviate pain.

These generic companies are making copies of legacy implants with proven designs and biomaterials. These generic orthopedic implant companies’ offer lower prices compared to branded implants and are thus a big threat for the big orthopedic devices manufacturers such as Stryker, J&J/DePuy/Synthes, Zimmer/Biomet, Smith & Nephew and Medtronic Spine.

Increased use of reverse shoulder arthroplasty – The procedure numbers for reverse shoulder arthroplasty are continuously increasing. Approximately 50% of shoulder replacements in the US, and 70% of shoulder replacements in Europe are reverse shoulder replacement surgery. The balance of shoulder replacements are total shoulder arthroplasty or hemi-arthroplasty. This increased trend towards reverse shoulder arthroplasties are due to their increasing utilization to treat shoulder fracture patients, expanding applications to both elderly and more active patients, the highly successful outcomes of the procedure, and surgeons becoming more comfortable with the procedure.
