Questions?


What is it? What does it do?

The Double Fix ACL fixation device is used to improve outcomes of anatomic ACL reconstruction.  Current ACL reconstruction surgical techniques and implants do not allow for adjusting the graft tension between the medial and lateral bundle.  The Double Fix fixation device allows for a single bone tunnel to be drilled and the medial and lateral graft bands tensioned and secured at different flexion angles resulting in a more anatomic ACL reconstruction.        

Why is it better?

  • Allows for graft fixation that more closely mimics native anatomy
  • Inserts easily using standard surgical technique
