In Memory of Biomet Founder, Dane Miller

Orthopaedics lost an industry stalwart this week with the passing of Dane A. Miller, Ph.D., one of four Biomet founders and CEO of the company from 1977 to 2006. He was 69.

Biomet was founded to compete in a market dominated by pharmaceutical companies with orthopaedic device divisions. Under Miller’s leadership, Biomet grew from $17,000 in revenue in 1978, its first fiscal year in operation, to more than $2 billion in 2006. Biomet has long been known for its family-like culture that was fostered by Miller even as the company grew to become of the largest in the industry.
