DJ Orthopedics Expands in Rehabilitation

Often overlooked in all the interest in orthopedics is the non-surgical side, a product area that includes a wide range of supports and braces--soft goods as opposed to hard implants--used to treat a number of musculoskeletal problems. Indeed, given that non-surgical approaches represent an important front line in treatment options for patients with such problems-in spine, for example, surgical interventions are used in barely more than 10% of all patients complaining of back pain-it's surprising that more attention isn't paid to this segment. One company that has made the non-surgical orthopedics market a focus is dj Orthopedics Inc. who, with its acquisition of Aircast Inc. further enhances what is already a number-one market share position in the $1.2 billion US rehabilitation products market.

Keys To Creating Value for Early-Stage Medical Device Companies

Small cap firms that reach a successful exit via M&A tend to share a set of chacteristics that enable significant value creation. Start-ups can use them as a template to gauge their own potential for success. Indeed, those characteristics, which include the development of a novel, best-in-breed technology with significant clinical impact, having a set of products that deliver a competitive edge, and careful execution of their respective business plans (including managing capital and timelines), can serve as a template for early-stage medical device companies, and help define the parameters necessary for them to engineer their way towards an outcome that maximizes value.

Spine-Bending Market

Today, the market for spine surgery is growing by more than 20% annually based on fusion technologies alone, despite the fact that those technologies are decades old and flawed. However, a heightened awareness of the clinical drawbacks of fusion is fueling prolific company creation in a new spine motion preservation segment of the industry. Some 118 start-ups in spine are dotting the landscape. Many hope to offer new devices that address spinal joint reconstruction; artificial discs, disc nuclei, annulus repair, facet joint replacement, and dynamic or flexible stabilization of the spine.
