These are used to treat complex orthopedic injuries, particularly to the musculoskeletal system such as spine, muscles, and joints. These orthopedic consumables include drill bits, saw blades, burrs, pins, and k-wires. These devices are used to restore joint movement, implant skeletal structure, and restore the mobility of individuals effectively.

Global Orthopedic Consumables Market: Key Trends
