QuadPro™ Tendon Harvester Graft Harvesting System

The QuadPro™ tendon harvester is the latest innovation for harvesting the quadriceps tendon using a minimally invasive technique. It was designed based on published anatomic studies and allows surgeons to safely and reproducibly harvest a graft of a desired length and diameter through a small incision and in a time-efficient manner.1-3 The system has the versatility to create grafts to meet the surgeon’s needs, whether the grafts be all soft tissue or with a bone block. The single-use design ensures sharpness, sterility, and convenience for every case.
