Date:7/31/2014

LONDON, July 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Smith & Nephew (LSE:SN, NYSE: SNN), the global medical technology business, today announced its entry into the forefoot market with the launch of the HAT-TRICK™ Lesser Toe Repair System.

  • The HAT-TRICK PIP Fusion System, which is an all-inside fusion of the PIP joint that is less invasive than other standard of care options.iii
