*Recurrent Dislocations of Shoulder* are common in young active individuals and old aged groups with lots of apprehension and disability during daily lifestyle and even during sleep.
*Shoulder dislocation* after an injury usually leads to *Labrum tear of glenoid* ( cushion and bumper of shoulder joint providing extra surface area of glenoid and protecting the humeral head from dislocation). Torn labrum can be repaired arthroscopically with *minimal incisions* and just 1 – 2 days of stay at hospital under anaesthesia to make surgery pain free.
These labrum tears can be associated with or without bony component for which Pre- operatively CT scan is required for assessment and MRI as well for confirmation of Labral tear.
Here is case of a young male with recurrent dislocation of shoulder ( Non Dominant shoulder) since last 2 years and lots of apprehension for dislocation during daily activities which limits his activities as well. He had history of shoulder injury while playing kabaddi and then while dancing.
He had come to ASIC, Indore ( Arthroscopy Indore ) for Shoulder surgery being referred by an orthopaedic surgeon for further management. He was clinically examined by Dr Tanmay Chaudhary, Arthroscopy & Sports Injury surgeon ( Knee & Shoulder specialist) who planned and took him up for shoulder arthroscopy surgery, which is a minimal invasive surgery of shoulder joint. Dr Tanmay is a senior arthroscopy surgeon with vast experience of knee & shoulder arthroscopy surgeries for all kinds of ligament and muscle, tendon injuries ( Sports injuries).
Shoulder arthroscopy was performed and the labrum released and glenoid rasped to allow good healing to glenoid edge.
3 Suture anchors were inserted and sutures passed through the torn labrum to allow apposition of labrum . to the glenoid edge.
