Rothman Orthopaedics & Farotech

Rothman Orthopaedics Institute is one of the top orthopedic programs in the nation. With a comprehensive grounding in both research and innovation, Rothman Orthopedic Institute remains at the cutting edge of orthopedics, bringing their medical expertise and caring demeanor to each and every patient case.

In order to broaden their presence in the ever-growing competitive market, they decided to partner with Farotech. Over the course of the partnership, Rothman Orthopaedics Institute’s visibility, exposure, and growth soared.

The Challenge

In 2012, Rothman Orthopaedics Institute had only 437,387 users, with only 66% coming from organic traffic. Given this, one of Farotech’s main focuses for Rothman Orthopaedics Institute’s overall marketing strategy was ensuring their digital presence was expanded upon and revamped to actively compete with other Orthopedic websites.

Our Plan

The digital marketing strategy focused on four main initiatives:

  • Revamp the usability of the website
  • Develop SEO-optimized content (as well
    as engaging videos, infographics, and
    downloadable assets)
  • Monitor the results
  • Optimize based on data-driven


From 2012 to 2017, users increased by 244% and pageviews increased by 206%. In the same period, the sites traffic from organic sources increased 279%, to make up 75% of the 1,529,495 visitors in 2017. Between January, 1 2019 and June, 28 2019, traffic had increased to 1,207,268 users, which is up 19% compared to the previous year, and up 60% from the same period in 2017.

“Working with Farotech has exceeded our expectations and been very beneficial to the success and growth of Rothman Institute over the last few years.”

Expansive Blogs

While working with Rothman Orthopaedics Institute, Google’s algorithm for ranking web pages changed and became more intricate. We took this an immediate sign to optimize our content-generation techniques to ensure they were aligning with Google’s algorithm modifications. At the conclusion of our research on Google’s reworkings, we inferred that in order for our content to be top-ranking, it had to have three key characteristics: depth, comprehensiveness, and a laser-focus on the main keyword.
