The shoulder is a complex structure comprising bones, ligaments, muscles and tendons working together harmoniously to provide the maximum range of motion. However, sometimes the harmonious motion can be disturbed due to injury or overuse of the joint resulting in a forceful shoulder dislocation. A dislocation occurs when the humerus head comes away from the glenoid fossa due to possible overstretching or tearing of the surrounding tissues. A glenoid labrum tear in the anterior part of the joint is called a bankart lesion. Bankart lesions can be easily repaired via arthroscopic surgery in Chennai at Pristyn Care.

Bankart lesions are common in patients suffering from a dislocated shoulder, but they can’t be diagnosed easily in physical examination. Bankart tears are usually only identified via soft tissue imaging such as MRI or via an arthroscopy or MR arthrography. In some cases, it may be seen in a shoulder dislocation X-ray.
Dislocated joints can be managed via medical management, but the most effective recurrent shoulder dislocation treatment associated with bankart lesions is via arthroscopic repair. An arthroscopic bankart repair surgery involves the repair of the torn ligament via sutures called anchors. The procedure provides significant improvement in shoulder function with a low recurrence rate and increased shoulder stability.

Bankart lesions are usually caused due to trauma and sports injuries. It is very common in athletes to get a dislocated shoulder in their twenties. When shoulder dislocates repeatedly, it can lead to a tear in the nearby labrum, called a bankart tear. Some possible causes for repeated dislocation of shoulder joint and bankart lesions are:
Anchor sutures are spiral screws that are usually used for fixing tendons and ligaments to the bone. Depending on the patient’s need and the surgeon’s preference, they can be made of plastic, metal or a bio-dissolvable material.
Suture anchors are tiny screws that are used to attach soft tissues like tendons, ligaments, or the meniscus to the bone to promote healing in minimally invasive surgeries. At Pristyn Care, we use PEEK and other biocomposite suture anchors material for bankart or labrum tear repair.
The average cost of bankart surgery in Chennai is 60,000-75,000 INR at Pristyn Care. This is the average cost of our treatment package and includes the cost of other auxiliary facilities we provide. It can depend based on:
After bankart surgery, you can start playing sports again within 6-12 weeks after the surgery. However, you may be advised to avoid lifting heavy objects and contact sports for at least 3 months to avoid recurrence of the injury.
Rehabilitation for unstable shoulder after arthroscopic surgery, especially in patients with repeated shoulder joint dislocations, depends on:
It is very important to personalise the rehabilitation program based on the patient’s needs, the extent of the injury and their normal activity level.
After the surgery, you may have to wear a sling for the first 4-6 weeks after the surgery. Since the treatment is done via arthroscopic repair, the recovery is quick, and you can return to your day-to-day activities within a few days.
Though arthroscopic bankart repair operation is very safe, in rare cases, it may be associated with complications such as:
Benefits of arthroscopic bankart surgery for bankart tear and dislocated shoulder are:
Arthroscopic bankart surgeries repair have a 90-95% success rate, and people can resume daily activities, including sports, in 2-3 months. In general, you can begin weight training 3 months after the surgery. However, complete internal recovery may take about 4-6 months.
Since arthroscopic bankart repair is necessary to improve a patient’s life by relieving their pain and discomfort, it is covered under most insurance policies. However, the extent of the coverage depends on each individual policy. To know more, connect with care coordinators at Pristyn Care.
Different treatments for the repair of bankart lesions are:
The treatment is performed via a minimally invasive technique called arthroscopy. First, the surgeon creates a few tiny incisions in the shoulder joint region, through which an arthroscope is inserted. An arthroscope is a slender tubular instrument with a light and a camera attachment. Then, the surgeon trims the edges of the glenoid cavity and attaches suture anchors to reattach the detached labrum.
Anterior shoulder dislocations are the most common dislocations. They usually occur due to forced or abnormal abduction, external rotation and extension motions of the joint. They are characterized by shallow anterior glenoid contours that predispose them to recurrent shoulder dislocations. They are usually managed by closed reduction and immobilization of the joint. Surgical repair is not necessary unless it is accompanied by complications like bankart tear, labrum tear, etc.
Posterior shoulder dislocations are much less common and are a little more challenging to diagnose. They are more common in patients with convulsive disorders, like epilepsy, seizure disorder, etc. Occasionally, they can occur due to strength imbalance in the rotator cuff muscles. They can easily go unnoticed, especially in elderly patients. They are difficult to treat via closed reduction, and an expert ortho surgeon should be requested to reduce them. However, if the dislocation occurred over 3 weeks ago, then surgical treatment may be necessary.
