Integra, a world leader in regenerative medicine, is dedicated to improving the quality of life for patients through the development, manufacturing and marketing of clinically relevant, innovative and cost-effective surgical implants and medical instruments. Our products used to treat millions of patients every year primarily in neurosurgery, orthopedics and general surgery. Founded in 1989 and headquartered in Plainsboro, NJ, Integra has grown to be a leader in applying the principles of biotechnology to medical devices, particularly for neurosurgery and orthopedics, and is one of the largest surgical instrument companies in the United States.
In the United States, Integra sells its products for neurosurgery and extremity reconstruction directly to customers, its spinal and orthobiologic implants through separate independent distributor networks and its surgical instruments through a hybrid sales organization consisting of direct representatives, appointed dealers and authorized stocking distributors. Outside the United States, Integra sells its products directly in major European markets, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand and through stocking distributors elsewhere. Integra is a fully integrated medical device company with thousands of products for the medical specialties that we target. Our objective is to develop or otherwise provide any product that will improve our service to our customers. These products include both surgical implants and medical instruments for use in neurosurgery, orthopedics, and general surgery. We distinguish ourselves, however, by emphasizing the importance of the relatively new field of regenerative medicine.
