My favorite thing about working in the orthopedic industry is knowing that as a company we are directly and positively affecting the life of every person who receives one of our implants. Too often, work gets in the way of why we do what we do, but when you stop to think about our industry, it’s a fantastic feeling to know our knee replacement patients are living their best lives, one step at a time.
