Don’t Forget Medtronic Has a Strong Presence in Orthopedics Too
In May, Medtronic announced it was acquiring Titan Spine. Mequon, WI-based Titan Spine markets a full line of Endoskeleton interbody devices featuring its textured surface in the U.S., Europe, and Australia through its sales force and a network of independent distributors. But what makes this deal so significant is the fact it comes on the heels of Medtronic’s rival Boston Scientific making a high profile acquisition in orthopedics, through the purchase of Vertiflex for $465 million. Was this a countermeasure or coincidence?
