“Surgeons have been using degradable materials for centuries. Everything from pig gut to collagen patches, but they degrade too fast, and leave a host of new problems behind.”
– Per Flodin, Professor of Polymer Chemist.
“In the past, various tissue augmentation materials, mostly xenograft based, have been utilized but have been met with complications and less then satisfactory results.
Artelon has answered this challenge for me. It has provided an excellent construct for tissue augmentation that has led to a strong tissue repair without the adverse side effects seen in other tissue augmentation products.
I have been so pleased with my results over the past several years that I will often use it as augmentation in my primary repairs.”
– Dr. Wayne Gersoff, M.D. Orthopedic Surgeon.
“Artelon is one of my go-to products; it is easy to work with and better represents the natural tendon elasticity and modulus when compared to the collagen-based grafts on the market. My Patients appreciate the fact that it is synthetic and there is virtually no chance for tissue rejection.”
– Dr. Adam Perler, D.P.M, FACFAS.
