Mission & Vision

What we value as ATRO Medical

ATRO Medical is founded with the objective to make a change through cooperation & perseverance. Our innovations contribute to preservation of the knee joint. These new treatment options need to be accessible for both surgeons and patients. Therefore, we’re ahead in contact with insurances before the product is available on the shelf.

Our solutions are:

  • Safety: based on elaborate studies and research.
  • Simplicity: the operations follow surgical intuition. 
  • Durability: the artificial meniscus offers a solution for a minimum of 5 years. 
  • Effectiveness: Lessening of pain and improvement of mobility as main objective.
  • Economical: We’re currently working on a compensation through insurances.
