Corporate Responsibility

As healthcare becomes more constrained and stressed, Axis Orthopaedics appreciates the numerous and evolving challenges to surgeons and their practices. In response to these challenges, a unique, surgeon-centric operational structure is central to the company’s mission. A portion of Axis revenues are dedicated to the Kenai Orthopaedics Foundation (KOF), an independent 501c3 not-for-profit entity embracing a three-pronged strategy to meeting surgeons’ practice and professional needs: Clinical Research, Medical Education and Philanthropy. Individually and collectively, this structure and these initiatives deliver real-world solutions in a compliant, ethical and sustainable fashion.
