New Offices to Be Located in Beijing, China
AUSTIN, TEXAS, March 6 /CNW/ - LDR announced the creation of LDR China to
further its global presence and to capitalize on the growing Asian market for
innovative spinal solutions. The new offices in Beijing, China reinforce LDR's
long standing commitment to serve as a global spine company.
LDR now has major offices in Europe, North America and Asia and is
selling its products around the world. The company will continue to establish
corporate offices in geographic areas that it deems strategically important in
supporting continued global growth.
Christophe Lavigne, president and CEO of LDR Holdings observes, "The
Asian market is an important and growing area for medical device companies.
China is emerging as a strategically strong position in healthcare consumption
and we see it as being especially critical for the spinal industry. We are
proud to enter this market and look forward to a long term relationship with
Chinese surgeons and their patients."
Professor Zhao DingLin, the Chairman and Professor of DingLin Orthopedic
Surgery at the Shanghai East Hospital, Tongji University has been involved in
the spine industry for over 30 years. Professor DingLin is also a China
National Delegate, SICOT and additionally the Chairman of the Shanghai Spinal
Research Association. Professor DingLin comments, "We were impressed with LDR
and its products because of the innovation they incorporate into everything
they do. While the Mobi-C(R) cervical artificial disc, that lends itself well
to multi-level applications, initially attracted us to LDR, we subsequently
found the company's other fusion and non-fusion technologies were equally
innovative. It is also important for us to be involved with a global company
that is committed to building long term relationships with surgeons."
Mr. Lavigne concludes "LDR is a global spine company offering a range of
fusion and non-fusion products for spine surgeons. We sell our products in
over 26 countries and work with great surgeons from many different parts of
the world. We are passionate about the spine industry and will continue to
build a total solutions spine company working closely with the surgeon
LDR works closely with surgeons to develop implantable spine systems and
instrumentation that restore optimum stability and mobility to patients and to
make spine surgery more reproducible and easier to perform. More information
