Currently, the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) that causes COVID-19 illness is widespread throughout many communities around the world. It is essential to continue to practice social distancing and other precautionary measures as recommended by your federal, state and local government agencies to protect yourself and your family. For additional considerations and tools regarding reducing your risk of exposure to COVID-19, consider consulting public health guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).


DePuy Synthes is pleased to provide resources to help you navigate your questions related to elective surgery. As you consider your orthopaedic and spine treatment options, the following guides may be useful to facilitate a meaningful dialogue with your healthcare provider.
