TATE Elbow
Patent #8,034,113 and additional patents pending

The canine elbow, the most complex joint in the body, has been an enigmatic joint to replace since the first attempt in the 1970’s.

Total elbow replacement (TER) with the TATE Elbow, utilizing a novel cartridge implant design and highly accurate instrumentation fundamentally based upon the central axis of rotation, has been proven to successfully treat dogs with end-stage elbow dysplasia.
