Arthrex Innovation Helps Tampa Bay Lightning Player Get Back on the Ice
How do you repair an ankle fracture to help a professional hockey player return to the ice as soon as possible after surgery?
For Sean Lannon, MD, there was only one clear choice for Tampa Bay Lightning player Alex Killorn: the minimally invasive Arthrex FibuLock® fibular nail technique. This cutting-edge implant acts as an internal splint to stabilize the fracture during healing. Proximal "talons" enable stable fixation to restore length, alignment and rotation.

Postoperative management is patient-specific and dependent on the treating professional’s assessment. Individual results will vary and not all patients will experience the same postoperative activity level or outcomes.
