THE FUTURE OF TENDON REPAIR
Trace Ortho is making the first device for tendon reattachment without surgery.
Each year millions of people in the U.S. experience tendon injury - and over 300,000 undergo surgery for tendon repair. This involves operating room time, anesthesia and open or arthroscopic surgery, with associated expense, recovery time and risk of complications.
Our technique can repair partially torn tendons back to bone through a needle inserted through the skin - without general anesthesia or a visit to the operating room. Patients can recover more quickly, with less expense for their care.
SHIFTING THE PARADIGM
Bringing tendon repair out of the OR is a game-changer
The Trace Method repairs tendon injuries using a needle procedure instead of surgery.
We dramatically improve patient care and reduce healthcare costs, while solving a critical need. Surgeons treat partial tendon tears using a true minimally invasive procedure, with reimbursement using general surgery codes.
