SuturePro Technologies Becomes Ceterix Orthopaedics
MENLO PARK, California – April 2011 –SuturePro Technologies, Inc., a medical device company that develops novel surgical tools for arthroscopic procedures, today announced that it has changed its name to Ceterix Orthopaedics.
“This new name allows for a broader representation of products the company plans to launch,” said John McCutcheon, Ceterix President and CEO.
Ceterix Orthopaedics develops novel surgical tools for arthroscopic procedures. The technology enables surgeons to place stitches in very tight joint compartments, while protecting sensitive surrounding structures such as nerves, arteries and cartilage. Ceterix technologies have applications in numerous arthroscopic procedures in knees, hips, and shoulders.
Ceterix was founded in October 2010 based on the inventions of Dr. Justin Saliman, who envisioned improving the outcomes of arthroscopic procedures by enabling surgeons to place suture patterns that can only be done in open procedures, or not at all, today. The company is based in Menlo Park, California.
