A Taiwanese orthopedic device maker enters the U.S. market

An orthopedic implant and surgical instrument maker based in Taiwan has entered the U.S. market, where it will compete with companies including Stryker ($SYK), Biomet and Johnson & Johnson ($JNJ), among others. United Orthopedic has dubbed its U.S. subsidiary UOC USA, and it will sell hip and knee devices. The company launched in 1993 and designs its hip and knee replacement systems by way of a vertically integrated, in-house manufacturing team. UOC claims it is the first Asian orthopedic company to win FDA approval for joint reconstruction. Item
