 Had a hip, knee or shoulder replaced?  Odds are that the implant was designed and manufactured down here and your surgeon got his specialized training here.  Arthrex is the biggest non-governmental employer in Southwest Florida, with more than 3,000 employees in Collier County.

Its campus in Naples is manicured within an inch of its life.

When orthopedic surgeons come from around the globe for training, they stay in Arthrex's luxurious hotel.

I attended an informational session for the community and took a tour.  One wall is lined with many of the patents issued to Arthrex.

Very contemporary.

Nice, as it happens I photographed a similar facility in Stockholm a few days ago.

Big money, Jack.

I suppose their implants are as glossy, precise and polished as the whole place seems to be.

Interesting, Jack. But at my time of life I would rather not think of joint replacements, thank you very much.
