Shoulder Surgery: Trimming of a Torn Labrum

Minimally invasive surgery to repair the rim of the shoulder socket to prevent instability and dislocation

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 damaged. A torn or frayed labrum can be repaired arthroscopically.
