Suture Anchor


Delivering controlled, adjustable suture tension, the BIORAPTOR◊ Knotless Suture Anchor provides an easy to use, potentially time-saving approach to labral repairs of the shoulder and hip

BIORAPTOR KnotlessThe BIORAPTOR Knotless Suture Anchor allows surgeons to control anchor tension in labral repairs post anchor insertion. Unlike other instability anchors, our knotless anchors do not rely on a bone-anchor interface for proper final fixation or suture security. Designed with an inner plug, the tension-ability and security of our sutures lies within the interior of the anchor.

Key Performance Characteristics of the BIORAPTOR Knotless Suture Anchor from Smith & Nephew

Independent Suture Tensioning

Our knotless anchor design gives surgeons the ability to tension the suture after anchor implantation. What makes this possible is the inner locking plug design that captures suture within the anchor. The result: final tension is in the hands of the surgeon.

Surgeon-Controlled Tissue Shift

Achieve desired tissue shift with a solution that puts the surgeon in control. With the BIORAPTOR Knotless Anchor, calculated tissue shift occurs after anchor implantation, similar to that of traditional knotted anchors.

May save time while protecting the joint

By eliminating the knot-tying step, surgeons may save time with less procedural steps and benefit from a solution that minimizes the risk of intra-articular damage due to knot stacks.
