DanaMed, Inc. is a medical device venture formed in 2014 to develop and bring to market a superior surgical approach to reconstructing Anterior Cruciate Ligaments (ACLs). The approach was conceived in 2013 by Dr. Dana Piasecki, a leading Sports Medicine orthopedic surgeon, and evolved through over 20 iterations to become the Hybrid Transtibial Technique (HTT). The HTT combines the advantages of the two widely-used conventional approaches to ACL reconstruction but avoids the significant surgical and clinical disadvantages of each.

Profile Description

The HTT is enabled by the Pathfinder™ ACL System – a surgical instrument (Pathfinder™ ACL Guide) and a flexible, steerable guide wire (Pathfinder™ Guide Pin with Sheath). Typically, the HTT procedure places the ACL graft in the anatomical path equivalent to the native ACL and with equivalent tibial and femoral positioning.

The Pathfinder System was patented in the U.S. and international countries in 2014. FDA registration as a Class I surgical devices occurred in 2015. The first commercial patient use was in 2015. Since then, over 1,000 HTT procedures with the Pathfinder System have been performed with excellent clinical results. The Pathfinder is routinely used by multiple sports medicine surgeons in the U.S. and is being adopted rapidly in additional practices.

DanaMed’s corporate headquarters address is in Chadds Ford, PA – a Philadelphia suburb. Distribution, regulatory and quality assurance functions are located in Streetsboro, OH – a Cleveland suburb. Manufacturing is outsourced to parts manufacturers in five states.
