Efficacy. Efficiency. Economics

Since our founding, Exactech has been committed to delivering value to surgeons, hospitals, payers and ultimately to patients. We demonstrate this commitment through our focus on efficacy, efficiency and economics.

Efficacy

Founded by an orthopaedic surgeon and biomedical engineer, Exactech has a unique perspective on product development. Our implants and instrument systems are designed for clinical efficacy and improved patient outcomes.

  • Optetrak® knee system: excellent long-term clinical performance with 98% implant survival rates1
  • Equinoxe® platform shoulder system: bone preservation provides platform for potential future revisions2; 7x reduction in scapular notching lowers reverse complications3-5
  • Exactech Biologics: Optimized DBM concentration for new bone formation6; resistant to lavage7

Efficiency

We work together with surgeons and scientists to advance the efficiency of instruments and the efficacy of implant systems while cultivating a culture of exceptional customer service because it's our goal to make every case go exactly as planned. Patented, streamlined instrumentation, often provided in personalized sets, support the individual surgeon's technique. Optimized instrument trays are designed to improve operating theatre work flow. Highly skilled representatives are cross-trained to provide surgical support across product lines.

Economics

Exactech understands customer needs from the exam room to the operating room to the board room. Studies demonstrate that implant longevity8-9 lowers the incidence of costly revisions.10 Platform implant and instrument systems address the continuum of care and facilitate intra-operative flexibility. Exactech's Accelerated Recovery Technique (ART®) improves patient satisfaction and enhances hospital cost structure.11
