Keith Palmer is the Worldwide Vice President for Hip Reconstruction at DePuy Synthes, which is the orthopedic company of Johnson & Johnson. DePuy Synthes is focused on adapting their technology, techniques, and implants to provide stability, flexibility, and durability to an ever more active patient population.

Keith reports, "When we think about our surgeons and our patients and keep them in mind, we have solutions that address unmet needs in patients that lead to improved outcomes. So, through our anterior advantage, our portfolio solutions, in particular, patients benefit from shorter hospital stays, quicker recovery times, and reduced use of pain medication when they're surgeon implants or comprehensive systems for hip replacement surgeries."

"Our patients today are highly educated on different surgical technique offerings. They even think about what's best in terms of meeting their needs, the quicker recovery, and even going to outpatient surgery centers and ensuring that the time is reduced to help them get back to their active lifestyle quicker. But they're continuously involved in goal planning with the surgeon to be able to address some of these needs."
