Kalamazoo, Michigan – October 1, 2018 – Stryker (NYSE:SYK) announced today the acquisition of privately-held HyperBranch Medical Technology, Inc. for a total equity value of approximately $220 million in an all cash transaction.

“The acquisition of HyperBranch supports our growth strategy within our Neurotechnology business,” said Spencer S. Stiles, Group President, Neurotechnology, Instruments and Spine for Stryker. “The addition of Adherus to our cranial closure portfolio strengthens our position of excellence in the dural repair space and aligns with Stryker’s mission of making healthcare better.”
