Smith & Nephew Launches R3(TM) Acetabular System a Revolution in Hip Motion
Date:3/6/2008

MEMPHIS, Tenn. and SAN FRANCISCO, March 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Smith & Nephew, Inc. (NYSE: SNN; LSE: SN) Orthopaedic Reconstruction business today announced the global launch of the R3(TM) Acetabular System, an advanced multi-bearing acetabular cup system used in total hip replacement procedures. The announcement was made during the 75th annual American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), the largest orthopaedic congress in the world, in San Francisco.

The R3 Acetabular Cup is engineered for multiple bearing options and features STIKTITE(TM) porous coating that is designed to enhance fixation and bony in-growth. The multi-bearing cup, in addition to providing flexibility for surgeons, provides a foundation designed to reduce wear and the subsequent need for revision surgery. Optimized inserts accommodate larger head sizes and help the R3 system achieve a greater range of motion. By utilizing a single set of instruments for all bearings and as the first system for Smith & Nephew to offer disposable trial liners, the R3 Acetabular system gives surgeons one way to think differently.

"The R3 System is another example of our continuum of care in action. A surgeon now has more options to treat the patient and when combined with our excellent hip stems, the R3 system presents a high performance option that fits nicely into our growing portfolio of products for active patients," said Joseph DeVivo, president of Smith & Nephew Orthopaedic Reconstruction. "The R3 system represents how we listen to our customers and provide them with high tech answers to help their patients regain their lives."

"The R3 Acetabular system will now give me the flexibility to tailor the implant to each of my patients," said designer surgeon,
