Labral Repair

Shoulder Labral Repair

The labrum is a ring of soft tissue attached to the rim of the shoulder socket that helps keep the ball of the joint in place. When this cartilage is torn, it is called a labral tear. Labral tears may result from an injury, or with wear and tear during aging. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we have an esteemed double board certified surgeon who stays at the forefront of sports medicine. We have a team of qualified orthopedic surgeons who are experts in diagnosing and treating all types of shoulder injuries, including those that involve a labral tear. We understand that a joint injury can not only keep you from enjoying the activities you love, but it can also impact your quality of life. Our Atlanta practice is housed in a state-of-the-art facility with a team of experienced physicians who use the latest methods and minimally invasive treatments to restore your joint mobility.

Depending on your specific labral injury, treatment can range from physical therapy to arthroscopic surgery. SLAP (Superior Labrum from Anterior to Posterior) Repair is often the surgical procedure that used to correct a labral injury when the labrum attachment to the muscle is unstable. If surgery is required, you can trust that our sports medicine team will provide superior care from your initial diagnosis until your final recovery is complete.

Symptoms of Shoulder Labral Tear

If you have recently suffered from a labral tear, you may experience a sharp pop or catching sensation in the shoulder during certain shoulder movements. Patients may then feel a vague aching for several hours afterwards. In other cases, the tear may not produce any pain. It is common for shoulder instability to result after a labrum injury, which causes the shoulder joint to feel loose and out of place.

Our physicians carry years of respected education and reputable experience with professional sports teams. You can trust that our surgeons equipped to provide the high standard of care you deserve regarding your shoulder injury. From professional athletes to weekend warriors, we love helping patients regain the activities they enjoy. Our sports medicine team has helped countless patients in Atlanta recover from tears and injuries involving the shoulder. Contact Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians to schedule your consultation with Atlanta’s leading shoulder repair surgeon today.
