Stryker Corporation operates as a medical technology company worldwide. Segments The company operates through three segments: Orthopaedics, MedSurg, and Neurotechnology and Spine. Orthopaedics This segment’s products consist primarily of implants used in hip and knee joint replacements, and trauma and extremities surgeries. In September 2014, the company acquired certain assets of Small Bone Innovations, Inc. (SBi). SBi products are designed and promoted for upper and lower extremity small bone indications with a focus on small joint replacement. In December 2013, the company acquired MAKO Surgical Corp. (MAKO). The acquisition of MAKO, combined with its history in joint reconstruction, capital equipment (operating room integration and surgical navigation), and surgical instruments, would help further advance the growth of robotic arm assisted surgery. In March 2013, the company acquired Trauson Holdings Company Limited (Trauson). The acquisition of Trauson improves the company’s product offerings, primarily within its Orthopaedics segment, expands its presence in China and enables it to expand into the fast growing value segment of the emerging markets. In 2013, the company launched the Tritanium Cementless Baseplate for its Triathlon Knee Arthroscopy (TKA) system, which combines biologic fixation with Triathlon’s kinematics to provide surgeons with an option for cementless TKA. The company also launched the Secur-Fit Advanced Femoral Hip Stem, which facilitates the restoration of biomechanics when used with its new Stryker Orthopaedics Modeling and Analytics system. The company offers Accolade II, the first hip stem with a Morphometric Wedge design, an evolution of the tapered wedge stem. Competition: This segment competes principally with Zimmer Holdings, Inc. (Zimmer); DePuy Synthes Company, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson; Biomet, Inc.; and Smith & Nephew plc (Smith & Nephew). MedSurg This segment’s products include surgical equipment and surgical navigation systems (instruments); endoscopic and communications systems (endoscopy); patient handling and emergency medical equipment (medical); and reprocessed and remanufactured medical devices (sustainability), as well as other medical device products used in various medical specialties. In January 2015, the company announced the asset acquisition of privately-held CHG Hospital Beds, Inc., which manufactures and markets low-height hospital beds and related accessories across Canada, and in the United States and the United Kingdom. In April 2014, the company acquired Berchtold Holding, AG (Berchtold), a privately-held business with operations in Germany and the United States. Berchtold sells surgical tables, equipment booms, and surgical lighting systems. In March 2014, the company acquired Patient Safety Technologies, Inc. (PST), which conducts its business through its wholly owned subsidiary, SurgiCount Medical, Inc. PST’s proprietary Safety-Sponge System and SurgiCount 360 compliance software help prevent Retained Foreign Objects in the operating room. Other business acquisitions in 2014 include the acquisition of Pivot Medical, Inc., which develops and sells products for hip arthroscopy. In December 2013, the company received 510(k) clearance to market a modified Neptune 2 Waste Management System. The Neptune 2 Waste Management System mitigates risks to healthcare workers by eliminating harmful exposure to fluids and smoke in the operating room. The company offers System 7, the next generation of heavy duty surgical power tools. These tools are used in total joint procedures, such as hip and knee replacements, and offer the latest in advanced cutting technology. The company also offers the 1488 HD 3-Chip Endoscopic Camera System, which utilizes advanced CMOS technology and premium optics to provide a clear bright image designed to enhance patient outcomes. In addition, it offers Power-LOAD, its cot fastener system that lifts and lowers the cot into and out of ambulances, thereby reducing spinal loads and the risk of cumulative trauma injuries to emergency responders.
