The first truly intuitive shoulder tendon repair system – the SECURUS ‘knotless suture anchor’ holds the promise of allowing a larger group of surgeons to utilize minimally invasive techniques in surgical treatment of shoulder maladies.
In responding to the demands of surgeons and their patients, Core Essence Orthopaedics has developed the first truly intuitive shoulder tendon repair system. SECURUS – a ‘knotless suture anchor’ device – effectively meets the emerging patient preference for Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) products.
SECURUS was designed to address the growing number of over 500,000 shoulder Rotator Cuff Repair (RCR) surgeries performed each year in the US and a similar number worldwide. While only a small fraction of these surgeries are performed using the less invasive Arthroscopic surgical approach, SECURUS holds the promise of allowing significantly larger numbers of surgeons to utilize MIS techniques to treat shoulder maladies.
