The orthopaedic surgeons at Center for Sports Medicine and Orthopaedics are always looking for surgical techniques that will be the safest and most cost effective for patients. Dr. Brett Sanders, fellowship trained shoulder, sports medicine & upper extremity surgeon with CSMO, has a special interest in open transosseous rotator cuff repair (RCR).
This was the original benchmark surgical technique for RCR, but the development of arthroscopic and suture technology shifted the approach. Dr. Sanders’ and his colleagues’ research on this topic was recently published in the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
In this video, Dr. Sanders shares his expertise with other orthopaedic surgeons and walks them through a true transosseous hybrid repair technique and its benefits to patients. Click here for more on this effective and cost-conscious approach to rotator cuff repair.
