About RTI Donor Services

Tissue donation is a gift of life – a gift that allows recipients to move without pain, to play with their children and grandchildren, and to participate in activities they thought were lost forever.

About RTI Donor Services

As an organization that recovers precious tissue donations, you have the opportunity to offer more families the chance to give this special gift and make a difference in the lives of many.

RTI Donor Services is a not-for-profit, American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) accredited organization, working with organ and tissue agencies to provide responsible stewardship of the gift of donation. By working with RTI Donor Services, you will receive the benefit of the science, safety and innovation of RTI Surgical Inc. While RTI Surgical and RTI Donor Services are separate but affiliated organizations, our missions are symbiotic – both are aimed at improving the lives of others with a focus on maximizing the gift of tissue donation, providing safe tissue implants for recipients, and providing education and support programs to donor families and the donation community.
