Suture Anchor


Now you can fine-tune your procedure

The uniquely designed FOOTPRINT PK Suture Anchor is our most inspired innovation yet. Unlike other anchors which require final suture adjustment prior to setting the anchor, the FOOTPRINT PK Suture Anchor allows you to adjust the tension even after insertion. This gives you optimal control over your procedure to ensure proper fixation and suture tension. Choose the anchor that always delivers great performance.

Suture security

Suture secured inside anchor, not dependent on bone quality.

Easy tap-in design

No deployment devices required.

Torque limiter knob

The inner plug cannot be over-tightened.

Adjustable tension

Inner plug design allows fine-tuning of tension across the cuff tissue.

Product comparison

The FOOTPRINT PK Suture Anchor provides less rotator cuff displacement and suture slippage according to initial cyclic loading studies conducted in a synthetic humeral head model.
