Ceterix Orthopaedics, Inc. develops novel surgical tools for arthroscopic procedures. The Ceterix technology enables surgeons to place stitches in very tight joint compartments, while protecting sensitive surrounding structures such as nerves, arteries and cartilage. This technology has applications in numerous arthroscopic procedures in knees, hips and shoulders.
Ceterix was established in October 2010. The company was founded based on the inventions of Dr. Justin Saliman, an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine. Dr. Saliman envisioned improving the outcomes of arthroscopic procedures by enabling surgeons to place suture patterns that today can be done only in open procedures, if at all. Ceterix is based in Menlo Park, California.
