Ground Breaking Surgical Procedure Receives U.S. Patent
There is Hope for Early AC Joint Repair
New York’s Dr. Struhl, is the leading shoulder specialist for providing optimal care and repair with his complete patented AC Joint Separation surgical procedure.
An injury extremely common in various sports, grade 3 or greater ACJ separations – when addressed promptly – can be reconstructed and repaired quickly and effectively through Struhl’s breakthrough surgical process.
Dr. Struhl was one of many doctors disappointed with the results from standard ACJ procedures, as there was always too much stress placed on the damaged area for regular surgical methods. Once Struhl saw the allure of closed loop technology, he realized how natural this technology would adjust to the issue of AC joint dislocations.
Steven Struhl’s new process, known as Double Endobutton Technique for Repair of Complete Acromioclavicular Joint Dislocation was successfully fashioned over several cases in 2002. Since then, he has performed numerous surgeries touting impressive results that have injured athletes filling his offices.
The process involves one small incision in the area of the clavicle, which allows this strategic surgery to be accomplished. This small incision, minutely exposes the clavicle, but is large enough to allow microscopic drilling in order to attach the two small plates (endobuttons). These two small plates are then carefully connected by a closed suture loop which is truly knotless, thereby eliminating the possibility of knot slippage or breakage, which traditionally has compromised surgical results. This allows for the damaged joint to have a more stable construct, leading to a reliable and consistent outcome.
Board Certified for Sports Medicine, Struhl is also a published author, and a Clinical Instructor of Orthopedic Surgery for the New York University Medical School. He also devotes himself to the residency program at the Hospital for Joint Diseases as an active associate in their teaching services department.
