Exactech, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXAC), a developer and producer of bone and joint restoration products for hip, knee, shoulder and spine, reported today that surgeons around the world are expressing positive response to Exactech’s (Nasdaq: EXAC) international launch of ExactechGPS® Guided Personalized Surgery, a computer-assisted technology that provides surgeons with real-time, patient-specific data to guide their implantation and alignment of Exactech’s Optetrak Logic® knee system.

Nearly 40 orthopaedic surgeons from eight countries, including China, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, India, U.S., Australia and South Korea, convened this month for Exactech’s first Asia-Pacific computer-assisted surgery masters course in Singapore. The event featured lectures from renowned surgeons and technology thought leaders, and provided surgeons hands-on cadaveric experience with the technology. A similar medical education course in Taiwan drew 35 surgeons.

“Accurate surgery leads to better benefit for patients and this system has a high potential for becoming widely used in Japan,” said Kentaro Suzuki, MD, head of orthopaedic surgery at Iida Hospital, Nagao, Japan.

Suzuki is among the growing list of surgeon users around the world, who are expressing even greater confidence in the proper placement of implants through use of ExactechGPS. The continued development of the system follows Exactech’s recent acquisition of technology partner Blue Ortho, a leading computer-assisted surgery development and manufacturing firm.

Exactech introduced ExactechGPS® to surgeons in the U.S. in 2014, and has since broadened its reach by providing medical education and supporting surgeries in more than 11 countries. The technology has steadily gained market acceptance and worldwide reach.

Exactech CEO David Petty said, “Surgeons and hospitals around the world are recognizing the clinical advantages of using ExactechGPS® for their knee replacement patients. The positive response from surgeons in varied parts of the globe is a testament to the technology’s unmatched capabilities and Exactech’s commitment to deliver innovative solutions that improve clinical outcomes.”
