WishBone Medical said this week that it acquired Turkish pediatric fixation device maker Response Ortho for an undisclosed amount.
Istanbul-based Response’s portfolio includes 30 pediatric orthopedic systems; WishBone had eight before the acquisition, the Warsaw, Ind.-based company said.
Eighteen of the Response Ortho products are cleared or approved for the U.S. market. Wishbone said it’s opursuing 501(k) clearance for the others.
“With the acquisition of Response Ortho, we are thrilled about our pediatric orthopedic product offerings. The combination of Response Ortho’s thirty product systems and WishBone’s eight product systems will give WishBone Medical the broadest product portfolio in pediatric orthopedics worldwide,” founder, chairman & CEO Nick Deeter, who also founded OrthoPediatrics, said in prepared remarks. “These pediatric orthopedic products can be delivered in sterile packed, procedural kits anywhere in the world, next day, to the surgeons that care for children.”
“We are excited that Response Ortho is now part of WishBone Medical. Our primary focus has been outside the U.S., and we will now be able to offer these innovative orthopedic product systems everywhere. Having more than 50 years of combined experience, Nick and I understand the unmet needs and will provide global solutions to children with orthopedic issues,” added Response Ortho CEO Sehmuz Isin.
