The Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation, the nation’s leading tissue bank, changes lives by connecting donors with surgeons and transplant recipients. As a non-profit service organization, MTF is dedicated to providing quality tissue through a commitment to excellence in education, research, recovery and care for recipients, donors and their families. Since its inception in 1987, MTF has recovered tissue from more than 90,000 donors and distributed more than 5 million grafts for transplantation.
MTF thoroughly screens donors. Through their stringent screening process, less than three percent of tissue is accepted. To learn more about Donor selection, click here.
MTF created the Vanguard Method for cleaning and sterilizing tissue that ensures a high level of saftey without compromising the mechanical and biological integrity of the tissue. Watch this video to learn more about the Vanguard Method.This method avoids using harsh chemicals and maintains the high quality tissue that you expect for your allograft.
MTF partners with ConMed to distribute sports tissue allografts. This video from ConMed goes in to more detail about their Sports Biologics product line.
