We have established strategic partnerships with key suppliers. We offer products used in cranial reconstructive and cranial closure procedures. We have three geographic markets: BIOMET is our principal registered trademark throughout the world, and registrations have been obtained or are in process with respect to various other trademarks associated with our products.
Our minimally-invasive hip development efforts have been focused on various surgical approaches, including an anterior supine intermuscular surgical approach. These devices are used by orthopedic surgeons to provide an accurate means of setting and stabilizing fractures and for other acute reconstructive procedures.
In addition to our principal executive offices, we maintain more than 50 other manufacturing facilities, offices and warehouse facilities in various countries and regions, including Canada, Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America.
We believe our prices for large joint orthopedic reconstructive devices are competitive with those in the industry.
We have 14 manufacturing operations located throughout the world. Our spinal fixation systems compete with other spinal fixation systems primarily on the basis of breadth of product line, product recognition and price.
