About Rotation Medical
Rotation Medical was founded in 2009 and is committed to advancing the treatment of rotator cuff disease through the development of a proprietary, minimally invasive rotator cuff implant system. The system combines a bioinductive implant that is affixed to the affected tendon using disposable, arthroscopic instruments that are designed to enable quick, reproducible outcomes during both arthroscopic and mini-open procedures. The bioinductive implant offers a new surgical option to intervene earlier and address the root cause of disease progression by promoting tendon healing in patients with rotator cuff tears.
