This survey asked physicians to choose the company or companies that provide knee repair products with which they are most satisfied.
More than one-third of respondents who do knee repair surgeries included DePuy Synthes as one of their preferred companies. This was followed closely by other competitors such as MAKO Surgical, Smith & Nephew, Stryker and Zimmer.
The survey also asked physicians to suggest what factor or factors would most likely trigger them to switch over to using a different knee repair product from that which they were currently most comfortable.
While many surgeons suggested multiple factors, one that appeared most frequently was if another product was able to demonstrate better clinical efficacy in comparison to the current product in use. This trend was present from respondents across all geographical regions and clinical settings. Despite subtle differences in physician product preference across the various regions, the survey results suggest that DePuy Synthes is the most highly preferred supplier of knee repair products globally.
