Smith & Nephew Racks Up Consistent Operational Gains

Business Strategy and Outlook

Impressive innovation has allowed Smith & Nephew to carve out a slice of the orthopedic, sports medicine, and wound care markets. Though the company is substantially smaller than the dominant orthopedic competitors, it has punched above its weight in terms of introducing meaningful innovation with its hip implants and knee replacements. For example, its Oxinium technology has demonstrated lower rates of revisions in hip replacements. The firm has also commercialized Regeneten, an implant that facilitates the growth of tendon-like tissue.
