As one of the top experts in the country in complex shoulder surgery, Dr. Steven Struhl has performed a countless number of procedures on various types of professional athletes, allowing them to return to their competitive sports after treatment. His most recent patient, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, MMA fighter and trainer, Brandon “B-52” Medina, recently suffered from a painful acromioclavicular joint dislocation. Dr. Struhl, well-known for his breakthroughs in the treatment of complex shoulder conditions, was able to use his revolutionary, patented "closed-loop, double endobutton repair" technique during Brandon Medina’s ACJ surgery to successfully correct the dislocation. Dr. Struhl’s "closed-loop double, endobutton repair" or "continuous loop" procedure for acromioclavicular joint separation has shown superior results when compared to suture-button and traditional techniques, as it has a strong and durable fixation, allows for normal physiologic movement and is surgeon friendly, minimizing complication risk and plan for long-term biologic stability. By using his novel procedure and superior surgical skill, Dr. Struhl was able to get this MMA fighter back to 100% in a timely manner.
