Rotation Medical Solution
A New Approach – The Rotation Medical Rotator Cuff System
Until now, surgeons have had limited ability to address rotator cuff injury at earlier stages of degeneration. In addition, traditional rotator cuff repair procedures that involve suturing tendon to bone are associated with long rehabilitation, significant lifestyle interruption and variable outcomes.
As a result, many people choose to forego surgery until pain is severe and range of motion is significantly impaired. However, as rotator cuff disease progresses, it can become increasingly difficult for your surgeon to repair.
The Rotation Medical Rotator Cuff System is a new technology designed to improve the treatment of rotator cuff disease.
- The technology can be used in earlier stages of rotator cuff disease to slow progression of your rotator cuff disease. Addressing the injury earlier can shorten recovery time, reduce pain and improve quality of life. Intervening before a full tear has occurred may also decrease your chances of requiring traditional rotator cuff surgery.
- The technology can also be used in conjunction with traditional repair procedures to improve the tendon biology and decrease the chance of your rotator cuff tendon re-tearing.
What is it?
The technology includes a collagen based bioinductive implant about the size of a postage stamp. This implant is delivered arthroscopically through a small incision over the location of your rotator cuff tendon injury. Your physician will secure it in place with small staples.
How does it work?
Progression of healing
After implantation the bioinductive implant dissolves slowly.
This implant has been shown in clinical studies to heal the tendon by inducing the growth of new tendon-like tissue, resulting in thicker tendons and replacement of tissue defects.
How Does The Rotation Medical Implant Benefit You?
Depending on the stage of your rotator cuff disease, the Rotation Medical Rotator Cuff Repair System can provide a range of benefits.
- shorter rehabilitation
- faster recovery
- potential to prevent or slow down disease progression
- decreased risk of developing a second degenerative tear
