Why would I need both Capsulolabral and Glenoid Reconstruction?
In certain patients, the damage after a shoulder dislocation may be so severe that both the capsulolabral tissue and the bone of the glenoid may require repair. Patients may require this special type of shoulder surgery when patients have developed recurrent episodes of shoulder instability despite previous attempts at surgical treatment. Contact athletes, collision athletes (such as rugby or football players), patients with shoulder laxity and patients with failed previous surgeries and reconstructions are excellent candidates for this combined reconstructive procedure. The orthopedic shoulder specialists at The Shoulder Clinic of Idaho can diagnose and treat patients with chronic shoulder dislocations, chronic shoulder instability as well as patients with complex traumatic shoulder injuries.
For additional resources and information on capsulolabral and glenoid reconstruction, or to learn how you can be treated for chronic shoulder instability, please contact the orthopedic specialists at The Shoulder Clinic of Idaho, serving patients in Boise, Meridian, Nampa, and the surrounding communities of the Treasure Valley.
