Consumer Awareness


BoneSmart® Knee Replacement & Hip Replacement Patient Advocacy & Online Community

FARM Orthopedics launched BoneSmart®, (BoneSmart.org), an international consumer awareness campaign to help patient-consumers learn about the exciting new advances in joint replacement materials in 2005. Using the powerful reach of video, radio, television, print, CD-ROM and the Internet, BoneSmart® is a one-stop information and clinic and hospital referral network for patient-consumers looking for a user-friendly, neutral environment, to explore their options and find the doctor and implant that’s right for their needs. Clinics in the referral network have access to the program and marketing resources to use in their own outreach and patient education programs.

For patients: Knee Replacement Info | Hip Replacement Info
