Orthopedics market to enjoy growth as old bones get more brittle

Short term at least, the outlook in the markets for orthopedics services and devices appears bright, according to Raj Denhoy, director of equity research at Thomas Weisel Partners. Denhoy talked about opportunities and threats in the market earlier this week at the third annual Orthopedic Design & Technology Conference & Expo in Fort Wayne, TX.

In addition to the aging boomer population and their now more vulnerable joints, the obesity epidemic also has increased demand for products and services, Denhoy said. However, Denhoy warned, the industry is also under growing scrutiny following investigations into kickbacks equipment manufacturers paid to orthopedists.
