What is the latest in correction of shoulder dislocation?
Q: What is the latest technique in surgery for shoulder dislocation correction? I have heard of some key hole surgery done in Singapore, which is minimal invasive and quick healing with least shoulder movement restrictions post surgery? Are any such surgeries performed in India?
A:The new technique used by many Orthopaedic surgeons in India, including myself, is arthroscopic shoulder stabilisation using suture anchors. Through 5 mm holes, one can correct the frequent episodes of dislocation by a technique called Arthroscopic repair. This is done with either metallic or biodegradable suture anchors.
