The original vision for Artelon was cast by world renown orthopedic surgeon Lars Peterson, MD/PhD. His experience clinically investigating multiple synthetic tendon and ligament devices that failed highlighted key design features necessary for a synthetic material to demonstrate real-world success in ligament and tendon reconstruction. Working with an elite team of chemists and textile engineers, Dr. Peterson’s vision came to fruition in the form of Artelon’s Dynamic Matrix. Since it’s inception, this technology has delivered on its promise of enhanced biological and mechanical soft tissue reconstruction with over 60,000 implantations worldwide.
Today Artelon is headquartered in Sandy Springs, GA, and remains committed to innovations focused on restoring joint stability and kinematics through novel ligament and tendon products and procedures.
