Our History

It all began with a simple splint.

DePuy Synthes was born in 1895, when Revra DePuy had the idea to manufacture fiber splints that could be customized to fit individual patients, a notable improvement over the wooden splints commonly used at the time.
Little did he know that this simple innovation would lead to him opening the world’s very first orthopaedic manufacturing business, and ultimately help millions of people keep moving.
