Paragon 28 has launched the Mister Tendon Harvester System, which is designed to facilitate minimally invasive harvesting of the flexor hallucis longus (FHL) and flexor digitorum longus (FDL) tendons.
The new system is intended to streamline tendon transfer procedures, particularly in flatfoot reconstruction, by enabling surgeons to make a distal cut through a small incision, thus potentially improving healing and reducing recovery time.
The Mister Tendon System is complemented by an accessory dilator instrument, which assists in the blunt dissection of soft tissue, enhancing access for the harvester without inflicting additional damage.
Paragon 28 CEO Albert DaCosta said: “We are committed to addressing the unmet needs of foot and ankle surgeons and the launch of a minimally invasive tendon harvester fulfils a promise we have made to our customers to develop less invasive instrumentation and implants for the most common procedures in the foot and ankle.”
The introduction of the Mister Tendon Harvester System expands Paragon 28’s extensive flatfoot solutions portfolio.
The company’s offerings include PRESERVE Cotton, Evans, and STJDA Wedges, Titan 3-D Cotton and Evans Wedges, and the Gorilla Plating Systems, among others.

Surgeon designer Thomas San Giovanni said: “As surgical procedures change with a noted trend towards minimally invasive surgery, so must instrumentation to facilitate the task at hand.
“There would be no use to carry out the typical open dissection of the patient’s soft tissue structures and neurovascular structures if tendons could be harvested of the same length desired by using well thought-out innovative instrumentation that facilitates minimally invasive harvest technique.
“In doing so, the same goal would be achieved all while sparing the anatomical region from needless dissection, avoiding surgical disruption of the soft tissue structural anatomy and microvasculature…do nothing that is of no use. The Mister Tendon Harvester was created based on this principle.”
Recently, Paragon 28 launched the Grappler Knotless Anchor System and Bridgeline Tape to strengthen its presence in the foot and ankle soft tissue market.
