Case Study

Athrex’s transformative move into the cloud


Arthrex is a global medical device company and a leading provider of orthopedic products. With a mission of helping surgeons treat their patients better, the privately-held company pioneered the field of arthroscopy and has developed more than 8,500 innovative products and procedures that advance minimally invasive orthopedic surgery worldwide.

The Challenge

A global medical device company, Arthrex approached Sturdy to connect its new line of endoscopic camera systems to the cloud. The company sought a solution that would:

  • Store patient data in a HIPAA-compliant manner
  • Synchronize data in real-time between camera systems, in-hospital server products, EMR systems, the cloud, and mobile applications
  • Liberate patient information and endoscopic images/video from the hospital and into the cloud
  • Offer a hybrid approach to connecting physical-world surgical centers with cloud-based services

The Solution

Sturdy worked closely with Arthrex to fully tap into the benefits of the AWS ecosystem, providing systemwide architecture, detailed software design, user experience design, software engineering, and various DevOps practices. The self-healing environment is built and deployed in a fully-automated manner using CloudFormation and Chef.

The Result

Called the Synergy Surgeon Vault, the finished product supports thousands of physicians across the globe, providing them with real-time, remote access to critical surgical information. The power of the cloud also enables modern collaboration and reinforces Arthrex’s leadership role as a technology innovator in its industry.
