Understanding the Market Dynamics Around Nerve Repair

Tapping the Perspectives of Physicians, Surgeons, and Hospital Administrators


A team at a consulting firm was working on behalf of a medical equipment company. They needed to understand the market dynamics surrounding nerve repair, nerve decompression/neurolysis, and procedures for the prevention of chronic post-amputation pain, as well as nerve decompression for treating diabetic neuropathy and ulcer prevention.

The GLG Approach

The research goal was to analyze purchasing behavior in this space to evaluate the value and price perception of four hypothetical medical device solutions for these procedures.

The team needed to first understand the current nerve repair surgery environment and identify unmet needs for their stakeholder. After this, they spoke with experts to assess the perceived value and price potential of each hypothetical solution, create their offer and pricing models for each solution, and identify any adoption barriers a new medical device would face.


Through extensive industry research and custom recruiting, the GLG team facilitated 36 calls, seven of which were custom sourced specifically for the project. GLG collaborated with the consulting team as a thought partner on an intricate project that involved much rescoping, pre-call preparation materials, and one-off follow-up calls.
