CONMED Corporation And Exactech To Partner In North America On Comprehensive Medical Education Programs To Treat The Continuum Of Shoulder And Knee Repair

Exactech, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXAC), a developer and producer of bone and joint restoration products for total joint replacement, and CONMED Corporation (NASDAQ: CNMD), a global leader in the development and manufacturing of surgical instruments and devices, announced today their plans to co-develop a series of medical education programs designed to advance the standard of care for patients across the continuum of shoulder and knee repair.

The companies plan to leverage their combined expertise to offer orthopaedic surgeons comprehensive medical education programs that address advancements in patient care from early arthroscopic intervention to total joint replacement technologies and techniques. The co-developed programs will take place at CONMED Corporation subsidiary, CONMED Linvatec’s state-of-the-art Center for Orthopaedic Education in Largo, Fla., which opened earlier this year. A quarterly schedule of programs is being developed for introduction in early 2013.

“Today’s patients expect their orthopaedists to provide a lifetime of solutions to their injuries and diseases,” said orthopaedic surgeon and Exactech CEO Bill Petty. “It is a unique challenge for surgeons to stay abreast of rapidly advancing techniques for treating the broad spectrum of injuries that can progress from soft tissue damage to joint disease. Few medical education courses address this range of orthopaedic care. Exactech is proud to partner with CONMED Corporation’s subsidiary, CONMED Linvatec, to provide this educational opportunity.” Providing surgeons with the best educational experience is a goal of both companies.

“Our co-developed programs will provide the surgeon with a world class educational experience, and we are proud to work collaboratively with Exactech to provide such a comprehensive approach to surgeon education,” said Joe Darling, President of CONMED Linvatec. “In addition, we are pleased to have the opportunity to showcase our new state-of-the-art training facility in Largo to a significant number of leading surgeons.”
