“Before Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Techniques were developed, Surgeons would place suture through bone tunnels to repair the tendon back to the bone insertion. This technique was called Transosseous technique. This was a proven technique with long success history. However, it required a large open incision and that the Deltoid be partial split or detached to complete the procedure.

Suture anchors were developed to replicate placing sutures in the bone and allow the arthroscopic technique for a rotator cuff repair. The Arthroscopic Technique is minimally invasive to the deltoid and uses very small incisions to perform the work.

Now thanks to innovative work of several surgeons the advantages of arthroscopic technique and passing sutures through bone tunnels have been combined.”
