SwitchCut™ Reaming System for Outside-In Approach


The SwitchCut Reaming System for ACL Reconstruction is the first self-flipping retro reaming technology to hit the market. This robust design is a user-friendly instrumentation system and a great addition to the current Biomet Sports Medicine ACL portfolio. In addition, the SwitchCut femoral guide in this system is designed to assist in successfully locating the I.D.E.A.L.™ Femoral Tunnel Location during an ACL procedure.



  • Quick and easy deployment of the blade by simply switching power on the drill from forward to reverse
  • Blade will deploy once it contacts bone in a reverse setting
  • Cannulated reamers allow for passing of the Nitinol loop through the tunnel to keep tunnel placement
  • 6-12 mm reamer sizes, including half sizes
  • Left and Right specific femoral guides
  • Point to Point tibial guide
