Scott Zellner: An American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons survey from November 2016 shows 34 percent of surgeons are doing the Anterior Approach, which is quite remarkable. Since 2004 we have partnered with Dr. Joel Matta, a pioneer in the space to conduct surgeon education about the Anterior Approach and back then, 1 to 2 percent of surgeons were doing it. To see this climb to 34 percent nationally is really remarkable. We are seeing numbers higher than the industry average, however, with upwards of 40 percent of DePuy Synthes users performing the Anterior Approach.
