Zimmer Biomet partnered with nonprofit Faith In Practice to expand the access of implants to underserved communities.

Here are three notes.

1. Through the partnership, Zimmer Biomet will provide instrument sets and implants for Faith In Practice to distribute appropriately. The goal is to improve access to total arthroplasty procedures.

2. Faith In Practice will then use Zimmer Biomet's devices and implants at the Las Obras Hospital in Antigua and Hilario Galindo hospital in San Felipe, Retalhuleu, Guatemala.

3. Each year, Faith In Practice enrolls more than 1,300 U.S. volunteers. The nonprofit provides underserved communities with short term surgical, medical and dental supplies as well as education resources.
