If you suffer from deformity or shoulder pain due to an injury, please Schedule an appointment with one of our orthopedic specialists as soon as possible.

A Bankart Repair, also termed as A Bankart Shoulder Repair Procedure, is a surgical technique that involves the repairing of recurring dislocations of shoulder joints. A bankart injury often happens due to a shoulder dislocation, which then damages the interior anterior glenoid labrum, a thick rubbery cartilage that lines the glenoid cavity.

When damaged, the labrum allows a small pocket to be created at the front of the glenoid cavity, making extra room for the humeral head to easily slip out of its socket.

Though complicated-sounding, Bankart Repair has a single objective to achieve, which includes reattaching the worn-out ligaments to their correct and proper place in the shoulder joint. However, depending on the severity of the damaged labrum, your surgeon might bring a more open and involved surgical procedure to the table.
