Price Cap on Hip Implants Expected in India

After implementing price caps on knee implants in 3Q17, India will soon have a similar cap on hip implants. Knee implant prices in India were slashed between 59% and 69% in August 2017. The expectation is that hip implant prices will be cut similarly. 

At present, according to the NPPA, an estimated 15-20 million Indian citizens require orthopaedic surgical intervention, but they either remain undiagnosed or are diagnosed but can’t afford the cost of implants.
