Sports injury and shoulder dislocation are closely associated. Shoulder dislocation mainly happens because of a sudden lifting of heavy weights or twisting the shoulder in a wrong direction or due to a fall. Being one of the most mobile joints of the body, the shoulder often gets dislocated. The upper arm bone that is humerus, pops out of the shoulder ball socket.
Surgical or non-surgical process
Primary dislocation can almost always be reduced by manipulating the joint back into its position under anaesthesia. Surgery usually needed if the dislocation is impacted or if there is a fracture along with dislocation.
A shoulder dislocation can become recurrent due to a tear in the glenoid labrum (a ligament which stabilises the shoulder joint), if the dislocation happens again, then it is always better to repair the labrum.
Which is the most recommended surgical technique conducted by doctors?
Previously open surgery was the only surgical technique conducted by surgeons. But surgery has gone to some other end with the help of technology. Arthroscopy or key-hole surgery is a process in which smaller incisions are made near the shoulder area. An arthroscope (a small camera) is inserted in the targeted area which provides images on a video screen. The surgeon can view the condition inside the damaged part on the monitor and repair the damaged tissues and ligaments simultaneously. A suture anchor either metal or biodegradable is inserted and ligaments are sutured back to the native bone. Everything is done through key holes using pencil tip sized camera and miniature instruments.
Why arthroscopy is best to treat recurrent shoulder dislocation?
- Small incisions (Key hole) are made thereby no blood loss.
- Risk-free surgery
- Patients recover faster as small incisions are made.
- Short stay in the hospital
- So patient will be back to work at the earliest.
