The Total Joints Market started the year facing increased headwinds from high deductibles and canceled surgeries due to a severe flu season. While reported revenue growth appears to be strong, without the positive foreign currency effect, global constant currency growth dipped below 1%. The year may be off to a challenging start, but SmartTRAK expects recovery to ramp up later in 2018 as surgeries are rescheduled.
Among the topics covered in the Q118 Total Joints Market Recap are:
- Foreign Currency Exchange Rates Boost Revenues
- Hospitals Facing Record-Breaking Flu Season Postponed Surgeries
