GROUND BREAKING AC Joint Separation surgery technique by Dr. Steven Struhl
Before Dr. Struhl’s breakthrough AC joint surgery, there was limited success in repairing severe AC joint separation through surgery. Repairing the ligaments and reattaching the scapula and clavicle through surgery had limited success. Dr. Struhl recognized the need for an improved procedure. He was a part of a clinical study using a new technique to surgically repair severe or type lll AC joint separation at the New York University Hospital for Joint Diseases. The study resulted in finding excellent results for the majority of patients who participated.
