The expiration of ArthroCare patents has allowed new competitors, such as Arthrex and ConMed Linvatec, to enter the bipolar segment. Increased competition in the bipolar segment has caused bipolar probe prices to erode. Erosion has been stronger amongst lower technology products, while products featuring more advanced technology have maintained prices.
Radiofrequency (RF) probes use a form of electrothermal energy to cut, ablate and shrink damaged tissue. By these means, disruption and blood loss of the surrounding tissue is reduced compared to physical cutting. Because RF technology operates at a lower temperature than other comparable methods, the surrounding healthy tissue is less likely to be damaged.

Smith & Nephews position in the bipolar RF probe market increased substantially in 2014 when it completed the acquisition of ArthroCare. DePuy Mitek was the second leading competitor in the total RF probe market. The companys strong showing in the total RF probe market is attributed to its position in the high-value bipolar probe segment. The majority of Arthrexs RF probe revenue was attributed to its monopolar probe portfolio in 2016, as the companys bipolar RF probe portfolio did not launch until late in 2016. Other companies analyzed include Stryker, ConMed Linvatec and Velocity Orthopedics.
