Zimmer Biomet Products

From the very beginning, our goal at Zimmer Biomet has been to create new possibilities for healthcare professionals and their patients.

It all starts with seeing the potential for making splints out of aluminum, rather than making splints out of wood. But questioning the status quo doesn’t stop there. It continues with the championing of biomaterials and design advances that are now the industry standard.

At Zimmer Biomet, our relentless pursuit of better and better solutions has led to revolutionary changes in musculoskeletal healthcare.

From the use of direct compression molded polyethylene, to titanium alloy in cementless reconstructive products, our capability for innovation is continuously improving as it evolves.

The promise of progress is how Zimmer Biomet got started and it is what still drives us today.

    I have been working at Zimmer Biomet full-time (More than 10 years)


    I have been working at Zimmer Biomet for over a decade and have seen the company go through good times and challenging times. The one thing that has always remained consistent is the opportunity for people to grow in their careers. I have had a successful career at Zimmer Biomet as the result of hard work and great opportunities. Some of those opportunities were presented to me, while I sought out others. Having support to grow your career is one of the best pros I have personally had a Zimmer Biomet.


    Like every company out there, Zimmer Biomet has room for improvement. This company has grown a lot, recently, through a number of acquisitions. Any time you are bringing people together through acquisition, there are challenges. Zimmer Biomet need to make sure that the vision continues to be clearly communicated and that there are training and resources available for the new Team Members to come up to speed on processes.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate your vision and remember that you lead by example.
