The original vision for Artelon was cast by world renown orthopedic surgeon Lars Peterson, MD/PhD. His experience clinically investigating multiple failed synthetic tendon and ligament devices highlighted key design features necessary for a synthetic material to demonstrate real world success in connective tissue 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 it’s promise of enhanced biological and mechanical soft tissue reconstruction with over 40,000 implantations worldwide.
Today Artelon is headquartered in Marietta, GA, and remains committed to innovations focused on restoring joint stability and kinematics through novel soft tissue reconstructive products and procedures.
