Millennium Surgical Corp. Named to Inc. 5000 List for 2017

August, 2017

Inc. magazine has ranked Millennium Surgical Corp. on its annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive list of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The ranking represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small and midsized businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

“By thinking of each customer interaction not as a sale but as a problem solving relationship, we are able to exceed our customer’s expectations – both in terms of customer service and in product quality – while building strong partnerships with healthcare providers. Searching for specialty surgical instruments can be a drain on hospital resources and funds. We put considerable effort into developing our resources and our employees, so we can alleviate that burden,” said Millennium Surgical President Robert Edelstein.

This is the fourth time that Millennium Surgical Corp. has been named to the list, earning a ranking of 4,012 this year, after also having been ranked in 2011, 2012, and 2016. Millennium Surgical provides specialty surgical instruments to more than 3,100 unique clients, year to date, including large hospital systems and ASCs. With the goal of being the most efficient and proficient surgical instrument company in the field, Millennium Surgical Corp. strives to provide clients and customers with the types of interaction and methods of service that they desire. With an average of 17,500 visitors to their website each month and more than 35,000 unique instrument patterns, Millennium Surgical Corp. has found success from continuing to focus their business on specialty surgical instruments.

In May of 2017, Millennium Surgical was acquired by Avalign Technologies, a full-service supplier of surgical implants, instruments, and delivery systems with a reputation as an innovative, customer-oriented medical device company.

The 2017 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 16) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year average growth of 481%.

"The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.” The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 10 through 12, 2017 at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert, CA.
