Smith & Nephew PLC said Wednesday that it has acquired Engage Surgical for up to $135 million, contingent on sales performance.

The U.K. medical-technology company said the transaction was financed from existing cash and debt facilities, and that this acquisition will drive its Robotics and Real Intelligence strategy.

"Partial knee procedures are well-matched for robotics due to the need for precise alignment and Smith & Nephew's CORI Surgical System already supports the cemented JOURNEY II unicompartmental knee," the company said.

The company said that Florida-based Engage Surgical owns the only cementless unicompartmental [partial] knee system commercially available in the U.S.

Smith & Nephew said it expects the Partial Knee System to drive its market expansion in the U.S. as well as other markets once regulatory approvals are obtained.
