Based in Chicago, IL, Medwest Associates was founded in 1992 by current owner, Paul Lopez. After careful research and market study, Paul saw the need for a customer-orientated, independent sales organization focused primarily on the Arthroscopic/Orthopedic market. He seized this opportunity and created an orthopedic distributorship focused on innovative products and superior service. He has seen the need to apply these principles to other areas of the market and have branched into Post-operative services, skills training, and office services. Contributing over 20 years of experience in the orthopedic industry, Paul brings his enthusiasm of the orthopedic business to the leadership of Medwest.
Medwest’s goal is to provide their customers with superior systems, knowledgeable representation, unsurpassed service, and continued focus on the future of their represented areas. Medwest features a full array of orthopedic manufacturers including Arthrex and AlloSource.
Our Sales Team is geographically dispersed to service the Midwest with complete coverage in Chicago and its surrounding suburbs, Northwest Indiana, and Northwestern Michigan. Our Operations Team, billing, inventory, and skills lab are located at the Chicago headquarters.
In addition to our skill lab at the Chicago headquarters, we also have a mobile lab that can travel directly to a specific surgeon’s location, allowing them to evaluate the innovative Arthrex and AlloSource products at their convenience.
