Very frequently, patient suffer multiple episodes of shoulder dislocation before thay seek specialized treatment
Surgery is usually necessary if the tissues surrounding the joint are badly torn and the joint is not stable on clinical examination. An MRI scan shows the extent of soft tissue injury and need for surgery. If the tissues are not torn but overstretched, surgery can be avoided by doing appropriate exercises to strengthen the shoulder.
We use key-hole(Arthroscopic) technique to perform surgery for most of our patients for shoulder dislocation. This leads a quick recovery, minimal pain, reduced hospital stay to just one day and allow complete movement after surgery.
However many patients, who have a bone defect or who are in contact sports need open surgery called Latarjet's procedure to treat shoulder dislocation. It has better results than key hole surgery in these patients.
You will be thoroughly examined and the MRI/CT scan images of the shoulder will be reviewed by Dr Jayant Arora , before most appropriate surgery will be decided for your problem.
