EMERGE MEDICAL: FAIR PRICES FOR STANDARD ORTHOPEIDC PRODUCTS.  Today’s orthopedic suppliers force providers to pay premium prices for legacy products: orthopedic devices that have not changed in decades such as drill bits, cortex screws, cannulated screws, wires, etc. In addition to premium prices, providers are often required to pay annual price increases of 5-15%. Current market conditions are inefficient and, more importantly, unsustainable.

Emerge Medical offers providers an alternative option for these devices without the brand name price. Emerge promises fair prices and exceptional quality on legacy products (Low PPI) that are used daily by IDNs and ASCs across the globe. Emerge devices, manufactured exclusively in the U.S., are compatible with existing hospital owned trauma systems and are, on average, 50% OFF OF COMPEITTIVE LIST PRICES with a GUARANTEED ANNUAL PRICE DECREASE for its partners.
