Orthopedics Private Equity – Market Update

Summer 2021


A relatively new sector to experience the wave of private equity investment, orthopedics has begun to show signs of being the next “hot sector.” Sharing similar qualities to other successfully consolidated specialties such as dermatology and ophthalmology, a mixture of provider fragmentation, high infrastructure costs (surgical hospitals, imaging, etc.), and profitable ancillary services, has orthopedics on the forefront of many private equity minds.

With only 12 existing platforms, the industry is still ripe for groups around the country to capitalize on a first-mover advantage. Many major metro markets remain untouched by private equity,  creating an opportunity for forward-thinking orthopods to partner with private equity sponsors to be in the driver’s seat of consolidation in their region.
