The Styker SurgiCount Safety-Sponge System

KALAMAZOO, MI - Medical products maker Stryker Corp. has for years produced some very high-tech devices that surgeons use to be more successful in operating rooms.

Now it is also trying to sell a relatively low-tech system that helps surgical teams avoid one of the most common operating room mistakes nationwide.

"This thing right here," says Stryker's Jason Davies, holding a 3-by-3-inch cotton gauze pad, "this soft fuzzy, fluffy thing is, in my mind, the most dangerous medical device out there because it gets left behind in patients on average 11 times a day (nationwide), 4,000 times a year."

July 13 (Reuters) - A U.S. judge has increased the amount medical device maker Zimmer Biomet Holdings Inc must pay Stryker Corp for infringing patents on a surgical cleaning wand to $248.7 million following a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court.

The ruling by U.S. District Judge Robert Jonker in Grand Rapids, Michigan, on Wednesday came after the Supreme Court in June 2016 ruled for Stryker in finding that judges should have more discretion to boost penalties in patent infringement cases.

Summary

Stryker has a knack for moving from strength to strength, and multiple lines of business across orthopedics, medical equipment, and neurovascular/spine are performing well today.

Acquiring Novadaq is a very Stryker-like move and the launch of the new total knee platform for Mako could unlock meaningful value, while the DAWN results are positive for neurovascular.

Stryker isn't often cheap, and it's not cheap today, but it is worth watching for pullbacks.
