New video: Arthroscopic Bankart Repair & SLAP Repair for a 32-year-old lady with shoulder dislocations
The shoulder is the body’s most mobile joint, which allows for a very wide range of movements. As a result, the shoulder joint becomes very susceptible to dislocation, among many other injuries.
Shoulder dislocation can be a painful condition that immensely changes a person’s life. One of Dr. Tehrany’s recent patients had a continuously dislocated shoulder leading to troubling pain and limited arm mobility.
At only 32, the patient had suffered numerous shoulder problems. She had appointments with other specialists. However, she wanted a second opinion, and she booked an appointment with Dr. Armin Tehrany.
Once Dr. Tehrany examined her shoulder and carefully analyzed the history of her condition, he knew that surgery would permanently solve the patients’ problem.
While the patient was struggling with the idea of shoulder surgery, she found Dr. Tehrany’s professionalism and knowledge calming. Moreover, his friendly demeanor created an environment where she felt safe to trust his expertise.
To provide educational content for everyone, Dr. Tehrany recorded the shoulder surgery to help people understand more about surgical shoulder treatment.
Before the surgery, the patient was diagnosed with right shoulder instability with Hill-Sachs and glenoid bone loss with Bankart lesion and SLAP lesion. During the surgery, Dr. Tehrany and his PA, Stephan Bouskila, discovered that in addition to the pre-op diagnosis, the patient also had synovitis and loose bodies in the shoulder joint.
Once they inserted the arthroscope, Dr. Tehrany had confirmed the patient’s severe shoulder condition. Together with his PA, Dr. Tehrany performed several procedures to address all issues in the shoulder, including Right arthroscopic infraspinatus tenodesis, Posterior Bankart repair with one anchor, Anterior Bankart repair with three anchors, SLAP repair with one anchor, Synovectomy, and Debridement and removal of loose bodies.
After the surgery, the patient went through an easy-going recovery period. Her shoulder became stronger over time, and she started getting back to her routine and pain-free life.
