This month’s case of the month is a 41 year old man who sustained a traumatic left shoulder dislocation. For most 41 year old people that dislocate their shoulder, the chance for recurrent instability is probably 10-15%. However, our patient broke off a section of the glenoid (socket) with his dislocation and he sustained several additional shoulder dislocations.
This was a “tricky” case, but we were able to pass sutures under and around the bone fragment and labrum arthroscopically and stabilized this man’s shoulder.
I hope you enjoy this video. If you or someone you know has shoulder instability that is affecting function and quality of life, contact us!
