Orthopedic Cement

Definition : Cements, whose main component is polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), designed to produce a mechanical interlocking effect upon hardening. These cements usually consist of a powder (PMMA, prepolymerized PMMA, or methyl methacrylate co-polymer), a liquid (methylmethacrylate monomer), an initiator, an inhibitor, and a stabilizer that are mixed together. Orthopedic cements are typically applied as runny liquids that set up into a solid hardened material in a time period that can be tailored to the surgeon's needs. They are used in orthopedic procedures to anchor metal or plastic prosthetic devices to bone or used alone in the spine to treat osteoporotic compression fractures.

Exactech began as a dream shared by orthopaedic surgeon Bill Petty, his wife Betty, and biomedical engineer Gary Miller, PhD. Drs. Miller and Petty had worked with several orthopaedic companies and thought they saw some things the industry could do differently, and better. They wanted to make a difference in the quality of care provided to patients suffering from joint diseases like arthritis. In 1985, the Pettys and Dr. Miller made the first step toward realizing their vision by incorporating Exactech on November 8. Since that time, Exactech has leveraged its founding principles to become one of the world's fastest-growing orthopaedic companies.
