The KATOR Suture Anchor System represents a new paradigm in tissue-to-bone reattachment. The system combines a transosseous technique with knotless suture anchor fixation to provide repair constructs with superior strength compared to currently marketed suture anchors (data on file). Because of this superior strength, surgeons can repair torn rotator cuffs or reattach Achilles tendons using fewer suture anchors, preserving more bone, increasing the "footprint" area and increasing the blood flow available for tendon healing.
KATOR is a medical device company incubated and operated by Surgical Frontiers.
