OrthoPediatrics Corp. designs, develops and commercializes innovative orthopedic implants and instruments to meet the specialized needs of pediatric surgeons and their patients. They currently serve three of the largest categories in this market, and estimate that the portion of this market that they currently serve represents a $2.5 billion opportunity globally, including over $1.1 billion in the United States. Children’s skeletal anatomy and physiology differs significantly from that of adults, which affects the way in which children with orthopedic conditions are managed surgically.
