Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc, a global medical technology leader, has opened a new Innovation Hub in Dubai to showcase the company’s advanced technologies, surgical robotics and implants to healthcare customers. “Our customers can now get close to our solutions and better understand how Zimmer Biomet’s technology and data can improve healthcare efficiency and patient outcomes,” said Mr. Wilfred van Zuilen, President, Zimmer Biomet EMEA.

In January, Zimmer Biomet opened a new office in Dubai to serve increasing demand from hospitals and clinics in the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey (MENAT).

Marwan Abdulaziz Janahi, Senior Vice President of the Dubai Science Park, part of TECOM Group PJSC, said: “Dubai is on the fast track to becoming a primary healthcare destination. Digital transformation and innovation of medical technology are allowing Dubai to raise the bar for healthcare excellence, especially with the new R&D Program boosting those efforts. Dubai Science Park is playing a key part in this ambition. Our community of leading science, biotechnology, and biopharmaceutical companies are enhancing the sector with advanced technologies and research fields, and the new innovation hub by Zimmer Biomet will strengthen Dubai’s impact.”

A central part of the company’s offering, ZBEdge combines multiple Zimmer Biomet technologies, implants and services to  offer a unique medtech platform in orthopaedics. In the pursuit for optimized care, surgeons and care teams can make decisions for individual patients with data-derived clinical insights and precise technologies, in the operating room and at every other phase of care.

ZBEdge can help to improve efficiency by connecting technologies, streamlining communication and automating workflows. Care teams benefit from real-time understanding of their hospital’s performance and are in a better position to realize opportunities to unlock efficiencies and optimize outcomes. The MENAT region is an important customer base for global medical technology leader Zimmer Biomet, with a significant uptick in interest and adoption of its healthcare technologies over the past 10 years.
