Audubon, PA, October 23, 2014: Globus Medical, Inc.

Based in San Antonio, TTOT is a provider of human tissue products including bone allografts, biomaterials, and soft tissue products for spine, orthopedics, sports medicine, dental, and wound care markets.
“This acquisition of TTOT will complement the Globus biologics product portfolio and represents a key step in fulfilling our strategy of building a broad business in regenerative biologics. TTOT’s products and capabilities will better position Globus in existing allograft markets while also providing a dedicated source of supply for our extensive pipeline of products utilizing human allograft tissue. We expect to continue our mission of bringing health to patients with musculoskeletal disorders through the gift of life from donors,” said David Paul, Chairman and CEO of Globus Medical.
“Since our inception our mission has been to lead the transplant community through excellence and innovation for the benefit of fellow man, and view every donation as an opportunity to serve. I am glad that we have partnered with a company such as Globus that shares our mission regarding patient care and values the gift of life from donors. We are excited about the opportunity to expand the reach of our current products and to continue developing innovative new products. Having spent a great deal of time with David and the Globus team, I am encouraged by the complementary fit of our organizations,” commented Joe Mims, CEO of Transplant Technologies of Texas.
