Somers Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine completes 1st BEAR procedure


Carmel, N.Y.-based Somers Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine Group has completed its first bridge-enhanced ACL repair, or BEAR, implant procedure for ACL restoration, according to a Nov. 30 LinkedIn post.

The implant procedure was conducted by Daniel Howard, MD, and it was the first BEAR procedure performed in Westchester County, N.Y. 

The BEAR implant is the first FDA-approved medical advancement that allows the body to heal its own torn ACL, allowing for faster patient recovery and higher success rates. 

Somers Orthopaedic, which was acquired by orthopedic management organization Health Plus Management earlier this year, is Health Plus' second affiliate to add the BEAR procedure.
