 ORTHOMET ANNOUNCES APPOINTMENT OF CHAIRMAN AND CEO
 MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Orthomet, Inc. (NASDAQ: OMET)


announced today the appointment of Richard D. Nikolaev as chairman of the board and chief executive officer.
 Nikolaev, with almost 30 years experience in the orthopedic industry, has served as an adviser to the company since April 1991, and was elected to the board of directors in June 1991. He spent 20 years with DePuy, Inc., the orthopedic subsidiary of Boehringer Manheim, where he held positions ranging from sales representative to executive vice president. Nikolaev then spent five years as president of Protek, Inc., a subsidiary of a Swiss orthopedic company. Most recently he has been president of O.S.I., Inc., an orthopedic consulting company.
 Donald R. Brattain, current chairman of the board and interim CEO, said, "At this stage of Orthomet's development, the board felt the company needed a chief executive with orthopedic industry knowledge and recognition. Having put other systems and key personnel in place during the past year as part of its turnaround effort, Orthomet's focus has turned toward strengthening its sales and marketing function. We believe Nik Nikolaev is uniquely qualified to assume this assignment."
 Brattain will remain on the board as chairman of the executive committee. B.J. Amdahl, Orthomet's president and chief operating officer and a board member, will continue in those capacities.
 Orthomet, Inc. is in the business of designing, manufacturing and marketing selected orthopedic products, primarily reconstructive knee and hip implants and related surgical instrumentation.
