The NUsurface® Meniscus Implant

NUsurface Meniscus Implant

The NUsurface® Meniscus Implant is a meniscus replacement in patients with persistent knee pain following medial meniscus surgery. Meniscus replacement has the potential to fill the gap between minimally invasive meniscus repair and total knee replacement. The implant is made from polycarbonate-urethane (PCU) – a medical grade plastic. As a result of its unique materials and composite structure and design, it does not require fixation to bone or soft tissues. NUsurface mimics the function of the natural meniscus and redistributes loads transmitted across the knee joint.


The NUsurface Meniscus Implant has been used in Europe under CE Mark since 2008 and in Israel since 2011.


Active Implants is conducting two clinical trials to verify the safety and effectiveness of the NUsurface Meniscus Implant: SUN and VENUS. More information about these studies can be found here.
