Specialists in Arthroscopic Ligament & Capsule Repair

According to the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, the shoulder is one of the most unstable joints in the human body, more prone to dislocation than other relatively stable joints, such as the hip. This is because the bone structure is not what primarily holds it together—what holds the shoulder together are its ligaments, capsule, and labrum (University of Wisconsin Sports Medicine).

Each of these parts hold the shoulder together. The capsule is cartilage that envelopes the joint, comprised of a group of ligaments. Inside the capsule is the labrum, a ring of cartilage that helps the shoulder stay in place. When a shoulder is fractured or dislocated, these parts can tear open, leading to acute pain and long-term instability (National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases).

What Can Be Done About It?

Through innovative arthroscopic surgery, the orthopaedic surgeons can repair torn ligaments with a minimal incision. Using an arthroscope, our surgeons only make a few small incisions in order to skillfully repair your ligaments and reset your shoulder. Our physicians have helped thousands of patients with advanced treatments, some of whom were soldiers or high-performance athletes.
