LEWISVILLE, Texas, September 29, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Orthofix Medical Inc. (NASDAQ:OFIX), a global medical device company with a spine and orthopedics focus, today provided a business update. The Company has experienced the impact of higher than expected volumes of deferred or rescheduled elective procedures resulting from hospital procedural restrictions, both in the U.S. and internationally, associated with the recent surge in COVID-19 Delta variant cases. As a result, the Company expects revenue growth for the third quarter of 2021 to be consistent with, or a low single-digit increase over, third quarter 2020 revenue.
"Throughout 2021, we have seen the positive results of our key strategic initiatives, despite the ongoing uncertainty associated with COVID-19," said Orthofix President and Chief Executive Officer Jon Serbousek. "While the overall elective procedure market has again taken a downward trend as a result of the pandemic, we are confident in our vision and ability to accelerate the growth of our business."
Mr. Serbousek continued, "We remain dedicated to delivering innovative, high-value solutions to physicians to improve patient mobility. Over the near term, we are focused on driving the adoption of the M6-C™ artificial cervical disc, the FITBONE™ limb lengthening system, and our recently bolstered 3D-printed titanium spinal interbody portfolio. In addition, we will continue to invest for growth, in particular with the expansion of our biologics portfolio and the development of innovative new bone growth therapy products."
