Shoulder Instability Repair

Are you experiencing pain and weakness in your shoulder and repeated dislocations? Does your shoulder ever “give way”? Shoulder instability occurs when the head of the upper arm bone is forced out of the shoulder socket, typically as a result of accident or injury. These injuries are painful and can prevent you from participating in the activities that you love. With the help of an orthopedic surgeon and suture anchors, you can get back to your active lifestyle quickly.

The Role of Knotless Push-In Anchors

If surgery is required to stabilize your shoulder, your surgeon will likely use a push-in anchor to help repair tears to the labrum (the cartilage around the edge of the shoulder socket). Anika offers many knotless push-in anchors for use in these types of repairs, including the Knotless AP Push-In Anchors, that provide support as the body heals, but are resorbed and go away over time so there is less foreign material left behind than other types of push-in anchors.
