MAHWAH, N.J., July 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Stryker's Foot & Ankle business unit today announced its new soft tissue solution, SonicAnchor™, the only implant in the U.S. market that utilizes ultrasonic energy to liquefy and flow into cancellous bone, is now available nationwide for suture or tissue fixation in foot, ankle, knee, hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder open procedures.
