From 1981 to 1985, Schmieding worked for Med Tech International in Westport, Connecticut.
In 1981, Schmieding started a medical device company called Arthroscopy Excision Instruments Inc., which focused on an emerging procedure known as arthroscopy. The initial investment was $60,000 from Schmieding's personal savings. After starting the company, Schmieding did not make a profit for the first two years. He ran his company from his apartment in the Olympic Village.
Arthrex distributes its products to more than 90 countries worldwide. It has subsidiaries throughout Europe, including Germany, Austria, Belgium, England and France. In 1991, the headquarters shifted to Naples, Florida. Since then, the company has grown from two employees to over 2000. In 2015, Arthrex was listed at number 94 on Fortune's 100 Best Companies to Work For.
