At MicroPort Orthopedics, we are never standing still. We know that knee and hip implants are constantly being improved just as medical procedures themselves evolve with each passing day. We not only embrace this constant advance in medicine. We celebrate it in our work.
We operate with the heart of a start-up but the soul of an industry powerhouse. This is critical to achieving our goal of being the fastest growing, innovation driven company in orthopedics. Our top priority isn’t just to help surgeons get patients back to their feet. We want to help patients get back to Full Function, Faster.
