Orthopedic devices are used to restore skeletal structure and joint movements in various types of fractures, abnormal growth of bones, soft tissue damage, trauma or other deformities. These devices can be surgically implanted or externally attached through minimally invasive procedures and hence can be classified as joint implants, internal and external fixation devices. Demand for orthopedic procedures is expected to grow in the near future owing to the increase in geriatric population and obesity across the globe.
