“While the stronger than expected recovery of elective procedures in the third quarter was encouraging, we also remain focused on ZB’s strong operational execution, which continues to drive confidence in our underlying business,” Bryan Hanson, president and CEO of Zimmer Biomet, said in the release. “It is important to note that the challenges and fluidity around COVID-19 persist as we move into the end of the year. Still, we will continue to transform our business, invest for greater value and prioritize innovation to better position the company for accelerated growth over the long term. I am so proud of our global team for the support we provide health care professionals and patients every day and our ongoing commitment to the ZB mission to better the lives of people around the world,” Hanson added.
