The shoulder is a complex, multi-directional ball-and-socket joint which allows movement in many directions. Shoulder instability and dislocation occur when the shoulder capsule is stretched or torn, and/or when the labrum is detached from the glenoid.
A scope and surgical instrument are inserted into the joint. The instrument will be used to reattach the labrum to the glenoid using suture and anchor-like devices.
