Biomet Sports Medicine, LLC, a subsidiary of Biomet, Inc., announced today the launch of the JuggerKnotless Soft Anchor device. The JuggerKnotless Soft Anchor is the latest product offering in the JuggerKnot Soft Anchor family of all-suture implants, securing its position as a leader in all-suture anchor technology.
This product, which may be utilized for labral repair surgery in the shoulder, is the first all-suture, knotless device on the market. Knotless anchor technology, which allows surgeons to secure soft tissue without the use of surgical knots, represents a large and growing segment of the sports medicine shoulder market. By combining all-suture and knotless technologies, Biomet Sports Medicine is creating a new market segment, as it did four years ago with the launch of the JuggerKnot Soft Anchor Device.
“Biomet has a strong and proven tradition of developing state-of-the-art products like the JuggerKnot Soft Anchor,” says Dean Trippiedi, Vice President and General Manager of Biomet Sports Medicine. “The JuggerKnotless builds on this tradition by bringing together Biomet Sports Medicine’s all-suture and adjustable loop technologies to provide surgeons with the unique ability to control the tension of the soft tissue repair. This product is a representation of our continued focus on providing valuable product innovation that supports surgeons and the patients they serve.”
The JuggerKnotless Soft Anchor features:
- The benefits of all-suture anchor technology, which eliminates the use of a hard implant that can fracture and cause loose bodies in the joint.
- A small, 2.1mm drill hole that preserves bone and allows more freedom in anchor placement.
- Unique technology that provides the surgeon with the ability to control the tension of the construct without tying a surgical knot.
The JuggerKnotless Soft Anchor will be featured at Biomet Sports Medicine’s booth #433 at the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) Annual Meeting in Seattle, WA July 10-12.
The JuggerKnotless Soft Anchor is cleared for use within the United States only.
