The type of Shoulder Labral Tears Surgery done depends upon which kind of tear there is in the labrum.
Tears caused by instability of the shoulder need the labrum to be reattached to the rim of the socket. This is done with an incision on the front of the shoulder, or with arthroscopic techniques through smaller incisions.
If the labrum is frayed, typically no treatment is needed since it usually doesn’t cause symptoms. But, if there is a large tear in the labrum, the torn part is either cut out and trimmed or repaired.
Tears of the labrum near the biceps tendon attachment may be trimmed or reattached to the top of the socket. The best way to do this is with arthroscopic surgery.
Shoulder labral tears surgery usually takes two hours to complete. The success rate of this procedure is quite good, with over 90 per cent of patients being able to return to their normal activities without any further complications.
The cost of the procedure starts from around USD 4,300 in India.
