DUBLIN, August 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets has announced the addition of Wintergreen Research, Inc's new report "Hip and Knee Orthopedic Surgical Implants: Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2016-2022" to their offering.

This report provides a comprehensive analysis including procedure numbers, units sold, market value, forecasts, as well as a detailed competitive market shares and analysis of major players' success, challenges, and strategies in each segment and subsegment. The reports cover markets for knee and hip Implant orthopedic surgery medical specialties and sub-specialties.

Old people have trouble making their joints last as long as they do. The patient stability and the relief from pain provided by the implant is compelling. The major suppliers are providing implants that are state of the art. Orthopedic reconstructive implants are used to replace joints that have deteriorated. Deterioration may come as a result of aging, disease, osteoarthritis, or injury.

Total hip replacement surgery has evolved dramatically over the years as advances in technology have made it possible to improve surgical techniques. 325,000 people had total hip replacement surgery in 2015 in the United States. Computer-assisted total hip replacement surgery is one of the latest revolutions in total hip replacement.

Zimmer is the market leader by far in the hip and knee orthopedic implant market. Zimmer® M/L taper hip prosthesis has Kinectiv® modular neck technology. This is better than traditional hip replacements that have had limited size and shape choices. Doctors typically adjusted the hip bone to fit the implant. Hip replacements with Zimmer Kinectiv Technology give surgeons a wide range of options to achieve a more accurate fit of the joint replacement to the hip.

Reconstructive joint surgery involves the modification of the affected area of the joint and the implantation of one or more manufactured components. It may involve the use of bone cement. The primary orthopedic reconstructive targets are joints. Hips and knees are the joints most commonly repaired with orthopedic implants.

Orthopedic implant vendors produce associated instruments. Instruments are required by orthopedic surgeons to implant reconstructive products. Interdisciplinary dialog in medicine through its extensive continuing education offerings is a vital part of the hip and knee implant joint replacement market. System partnership means even more intensive exchange to continuously improve patient care. The company seeks to actively contribute extensive knowledge of procurement, logistics and application processes to the medical community.
