We operate with the heart of a start-up but the soul of an industry powerhouse. This is critical to achieving our goal of being the fastest growing, innovation driven company in orthopedics. Our top priority isn’t just to help surgeons get patients back to their feet. We want to help patients get back to Full Function, Faster.

Quality Products, Quality People
This is why, at MicroPort Orthopedics, no other consideration gets in the way of doing things right. Whether difficult, expensive, or more time consuming, completing a task the proper way is the only path we pursue. Based on honesty, respect and trust for everyone with whom we do business, all of our behaviors, actions and decisions are geared to produce products and services of only the highest quality.
We Work Together
Being a trusted resource for our family of surgeons and global community of satisfied patients is one of the most precious assets we have today. This is why we consistently invest time working to build trusting relationships through friendships, respect and our ongoing achievements. As a cross-functional company, we collaborate freely and contribute when needs arise. We take pride in our work and our company.
Always Searching for a Better Solution
Respectful, constructive debate is an ongoing process that fuels our culture of creativity. Sharing knowledge and ideas is a daily essential that helps us anticipate needs and develop new solutions. Of course, we could not be an innovation driven company without accepting the need to learn from our mistakes. Still, we are relentless in viewing every obstacle as an opportunity. And we relish each opportunity to take an informed risk that may produce progress. This is how we have helped patients return to full function faster.
We Listen, then Deliver
Before we talk to our customers, we listen to them. Our family of trusted surgeons is a boundless source of knowledge and information. So the essence of being responsive is to understand the challenges they face each day before seeking to be understood in answering their needs.
MicroPort’s Orthopedic’s “Ask Us” resource is available to all employees around the world to provide them with an opportunity to ask compliance questions that arise in a day-to-day business context and may be accessed via a toll-free telephone number (1-866-830-0890) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
MicroPort has an “Ethics Hotline” which allows employees to disclose, confidentially and without retaliation, to the Compliance Department any identified issues, questions, or suspected violations of law and company policies, practices, or procedures. The Ethics Hotline is available 24 hours per day, seven days a week and may be accessed in the U.S. via a toll-free telephone number (1-855-726-6898). If you learn of, or suspect, a violation of the Code of Business Conduct, related policies or procedures, or applicable laws and regulations in connection with the conduct of the Company’s business, you have a mandatory duty to report the matter to the Compliance Department.
All persons also have the option to directly contact the Compliance Department via email at email@example.com.
File a Report
Everyone has the option to submit compliance violations or suspected violations anonymously. The Company prefers that you identify yourself when reporting violations in order to permit the Company to contact you in the event further information is needed to properly conduct a thorough investigation. Your identity will be maintained in the strictest of confidence to the extent practicable under the circumstances. No individual reporting a violation will be subject to retaliation based on any good faith report he or she makes.
