Date:2/25/2009

MEMPHIS, Tenn. and MUNICH, Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Smith & Nephew's Orthopaedics business and BrainLAB today announce an agreement by which BrainLAB will become the exclusive vendor for developing and supporting computer-assisted surgical technologies for Smith & Nephew's high performance hip and knee implants.
