Ortho world, I am sharing a quick review of 2019 and outlook for 2020.
First, thank you for reaching out. I was humbled by the number of Ortho professionals who connected with me last year.
Ok, here we go.
2019 was the biggest year ever for the blog with over 2 million visitors. Below are the MOST READ stories, a strange mix of topics.
I launched and shared 32 podcast episodes of “Inside Orthopedics”. Always ad free. The most listened to episodes are below. Go HERE to listen on your favorite podcaster.
Acquisitions in 2019
2019 was a wild year for acquisitions. There was the one big announcement of Stryker eating Wright, mainly for their upper extremity business. There were also big takeouts in biologics (Osiris), robotics (Verb), and spine (Titan & Vertiflex).
All key Acquisitions are listed by date here.
I have been watching these 11 TRENDS that I believe will grow stronger this year.
