Arthroscopic Capsular Tear Repair-Reconstruction

Surgery for shoulder instability is indicated for people who have recurrent shoulder dislocations, subluxations or symptoms that affect their daily activities, work, sports or recreation. Surgery may be recommended for young, active individuals after their first anterior dislocation because young patients have a high likelihood (80 percent or greater) of recurrent (repeat) dislocations. Older patients with an anterior dislocation are less likely to re-dislocate and may do well without surgery as long as they do not sustain a fracture or rotator cuff tear with their dislocation. When someone dislocates their shoulder, the capsulolabral tissues (labrum, capsule and ligaments) are torn leaving the shoulder unstable. The goal of surgery is to repair the torn structures and stabilize the shoulder to prevent further instability or dislocations and pain symptoms.
