Additional Information: Fellowship-trained, board-certified orthopedic surgeon Dr. Eric Tannenbaum of Southern Indiana Orthopedics recently performed the very first surgery implanting an InSpace balloon in Columbus. A newer device in the medical field, the implant is used to treat patients suffering from massive, irreparable rotator cuff tears. The procedure is minimally invasive, performed through a very small incision, and the implant is a biodegradable balloon spacer that solves functional shoulder issues and relieves pain without requiring sutures or fixation devices.

Patients in need of advanced care for shoulder injuries are encouraged to call (812) 376-9353 for an appointment at Southern Indiana Orthopedics.
