While hundreds of companies participate, we highlight for you our leading players—Medtronic, DePuy Synthes, NuVasive, Stryker, Globus Medical, Zimmer Biomet, K2M, Aesculap, Spinal Elements and ulrich medical.

Extracting spine-specific revenue from public companies can prove to be challenging...as you already know, if you've made the attempt. This is due to the fact that each company has its own unique reporting structure, which often means that there's more than spine in their number. This challenge, coupled with the fact that the majority of spine and orthopaedic companies do not make their revenue public, makes estimating and projecting both difficult and rewarding...we rely heavily on privately-executed surveys, relationships with analysts and insiders and a deep working knowledge of product lines and new products.
