Tennis is an elegant sport but can be rough on the body – especially to a player’s joints. Two common injuries1,2 that tennis players suffer are rotator cuff tears in the shoulder and meniscus tears in the knee. Smith+Nephew offers advanced solutions for both of these injuries that are supported by clinical evidence and time-tested results.

Smith+Nephew’s comprehensive Advanced Healing Solutions portfolio is redefining biological healing in rotator cuff repair. Backed by 10 years of clinical evidence and more than 100,000 procedures completed globally since its introduction in 2014, the REGENETEN Bioinductive Implant has had a transformative impact, offering a better solution for more than 1 million3 patients having surgery for a rotator cuff tear each year. The collagen-based implant supports the body’s natural healing response to facilitate the formation of new tendon-like tissue to biologically augment the existing tendon and change the course of rotator cuff tear progression.4-10

Smith+Nephew also has an established track record of success in knee repair including a 30-year legacy of saving the meniscus rather than removing it. One of the most frequently published meniscal repair devices on the market, the FAST-FIX Family of meniscal repair solutions has helped surgeons repair hundreds of thousands11 of meniscal tears over the past 30 years due to its ease of use,12 high fixation strength,*13-16 and strong, reliable repairs.17-19 With an 88% mean success rate of all-inside repairs,20 the FAST-FIX Family has truly helped patients return to a Life Unlimited.

“Both Smith+Nephew and the players participating in Wimbledon share a common thread as leaders in their respective fields and being among the best at what they do,” said Christie Van Geffen, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing for Sports Medicine at Smith+Nephew. “It’s an honour to sponsor players competing in this year’s Championship and we look forward to helping athletes all over the world get back to performing at the highest level.”
