About The SuperBall™ Meniscal Repair System

The SuperBall™ is an all-inside, all-suture, knotless meniscal repair device that replaces hard polymer implants with soft flexible suture bundles. The SuperBall’s unique tensioning mechanism enables surgeons to have complete control of the repair, mimicking Inside-Out tensioning of the meniscus. Its proprietary repair suture mesh lays flat, protecting the repaired meniscus and the articulating cartilage, while the SuperBall™ extracapsular fixation secures the repair and leaves no knots in the joint space.

The SuperBall™ has 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and a CE mark for European markets. It addresses the need of over two million patients a year that undergo meniscus surgery and a growing trend of surgeons towards meniscal preservation.

The team at Arcuro Medical has made great progress in its mission to assist surgeons in improving their patients’ quality of life. “The SuperBall™ technology is the best solution for effective and consistent meniscus repair, and thousands of patients are benefiting as a result.
Jamal Rushdy, CEO of Arcuro Medical

We’re excited to welcome Jamal as CEO, whom we have known as a board member for many years and has a successful leadership track record at early-to-mid stage MedTech companies. His leadership experience and deep knowledge of orthopedics and sports medicine will contribute significant value as we enter the next stage of growth. On behalf of the board, I also want to recognize Lee’s exceptional contributions as a co-founder and leading the company from early R&D into commercialization. She has the admiration of industry colleagues and the appreciation of all of us at Arcuro, and we thank her for continuing to serve the company in her new role.
