Attune Poly Issue

3 days ago

Any truth to this?

Turns out we have some new lawyer bait.

The London Implant Retrieval Center (mostly funded by DePuy) has now revealed that the backside of Attune AOX poly is showing way more damage than PFC Sigma poly in retrieved inserts.

Don't know whether its bad poly or a bad locking mechanism, but its nice to give FDA MAUDE something new to fill the annals now we fixed the tray.

Depuy Attune Tibial Loosening

Another one came out today, clean with not a drop of cement.

Depuy Synthes Jabil

3 weeks ago

I feel sorry for the monument employees who were transferred to Jabil. Everyone makes fun of JNJ on these forums but the benefits were better than average. For the largest healthcare company in the world, admittedly they should be better but still, they are probably better than Jabil's. Now these employees will have all of their benefits turned upside down just so JNJ and Gorsky could save a couple of bucks.

Cementless Knee

Depuy should figure out how to make a cemented baseplate that doesn't fall out before they start trying to compete with Triathlon and Persona pressfit.

What is Mark Zuckerberg's number one hiring rule?

2 days ago

Building a culture at a startup, large organization or even a small sales team needs to be handled with care and thoughtfulness. Hiring one bad apple could impact how your company performs and gains traction in the market.

Juan Jose Gonzalez Rumored to be Out

4 months ago

His demise can be blamed on ATTUNE and the revision platform being so late to market. Accurate or not, the market started believing the hype about tibia loosening with ATTUNE and there was nothing in our bag to counter the claims. Him having a revision platform sooner would have gone a long way.

They're currently hiring for sales positions and I'd like to know this too.

Something Big Going Down Soon?

6 months ago

Why else would big distributors and reps constantly leave on a monthly basis?

Do the reps and distributors know something? Lawsuit, a complete shift in Depuy's sales model?

There is definitely smoke....

No Need for Mako and other Robots

6 months ago

I love how Gorsky and the Depuy execs think they're smarter than the rest of the market. Try hitting the field with old technology when everyone else is talking about robots and see how it works out for ya.

We don't have robots but we have ok products and stellar bundled pricing....hahaha

So in the meantime without a robot, how can J&J DePuy Synthes woo hospitals and knee surgeons, some of whom are part of Medicare's mandatory 90-day bundled payment program called the Comprehensive Care for Join…

The robotic have-not: How J&J plans to woo hospitals, knee surgeons

As the buzz around robotics grows, J&J 's DePuy Synthes is touting the clinical and economic evidence tied to its non-robotic knee platform to help hospitals navigate the bundled payments era, but will that sway them?

Depuy to acquire Wright Medical

7 months ago

This rumor is so old. As a Depuy rep, why would I want to sell more below average products? Get me something good to sell and we can talk.

Smith & Nephew Poaching Reps

SNN has to throw money at reps because their Hip & Knee marketshare is so low. Smart move IMO!

Do you consider an insane amount of reps leaving for Smith & Nephew attrition?
