ANDOVER, Mass. - TwinFix Suture Anchors with Needles is a revolutionary instrument that aids in soft tissue reattachment in the shoulder and in other joint procedures.

Created by engineers at Smith & Nephew, Inc., Endoscopy Division, the dual-armed sutures allow surgeons to operate reportedly with greater speed and flexibility when reattaching soft tissue to the bone.

"The techniques for soft tissue repair in open, mini-open and arthroscopic surgery can vary among the orthopaedic surgeon community," says Gary G. Poehling, MD, chairman of orthopaedics at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C. "This instrument will provide surgeons with a unique option to meet these wide range of needs in any join in the body, including the hand."
