  • What is a Shoulder Dislocation?

    A dislocated shoulder is an injury in which the upper arm bone pops out of the cup-shaped socket that’s part of the shoulder blade. The shoulder is the body’s most flexible joint, which makes it more likely to dislocate.

    If you suspect a dislocated shoulder, seek prompt medical attention. Most people regain full use of their shoulders within a few weeks. However, once a shoulder dislocates, the joint might be prone to repeat dislocations. There are different treatment options for shoulder dislocation depending on the severity of the condition. If medication and physical therapy fail to treat the condition, then you may require surgery.

    What are the Different Types of Shoulder Dislocation Surgery?

    Different types of shoulder dislocation surgery, along with their procedure, are as follows:

    • Bankart repair surgery: A bankart repair is a surgical technique usually performed to repair recurrent shoulder joint dislocations. During the procedure, the worn-out ligaments are re-attached to the proper place in the shoulder joint, using the objective of rebuilding normal function.
    • Capsular shift surgery: This surgical procedure is performed to tighten the joint capsule. During this procedure, a surgeon uses an arthroscope to tighten the capsule and the ligaments in order to stabilize the shoulder.
    • Latarjet procedure: It is usually recommended for a person with bone loss at the shoulder’s socket. This procedure involves taking a small amount of bone material from the coracoid process (part of the shoulder blade) and transferring it to the front part of the shoulder’s socket. Bone loss in the socket can also be repaired with bone grafts taken from the patient’s iliac crest (part of the pelvic bone) or from a donor. Bone grafts from a donor or bone bank may increase the risk of infection.
    • Remplissage procedure: A healthcare provider usually suggests this procedure if the shoulder’s ball, or humeral head, is damaged by dislocation, causing a condition known as a Hill-Sachs lesion. This procedure involves resurfacing the head and/or filling in the defect by fixing it to part of the rotator cuff.

    Are you going through any of these symptoms?

    How are Dislocated Shoulders Diagnosed?

    During diagnosis, a healthcare provider usually asks about past injuries, evaluate the symptoms, examine the shoulder and arm, and suggests a few diagnostic tests to understand the severity of the condition. Some common diagnostic tests are as follows:

    • X-ray
    • MRI
    • CT scan
    • Musculoskeletal ultrasound

    These tests help in understanding the severity of the condition and identifying any underlying health condition that might complicate the surgery. 

    Benefits of Shoulder Dislocation Surgery

    Benefits of arthroscopic bankart surgery compared to conventional surgery for bankart tear and dislocated shoulder are:

    • Small incisions
    • Less surgical time
    • Minimal postoperative pain and discomfort
    • Low chances of complications
    • Less blood loss
    • Improved range of motion of the shoulder joint 
    • Enhanced stability of the shoulder joint 
    • Low chances of repeated dislocation

    What Should I Expect After the Procedure?

    After undergoing shoulder dislocation surgery, you can expect the following during the recovery period:

    • Immediate post-op: After surgery, patients are usually transferred to the recovery area, where medical staff monitors the condition after the patient wakes up from anesthesia.
    • Pain management: After surgery, the patient may experience discomfort, but a surgeon usually prescribes pain medications to help you manage the pain.
    • Immobilization: Depending on the type of dislocation and surgical approach, you might need to wear a sling or shoulder immobilizer for a specific duration to protect and support the healing joint.
    • Physical therapy: Rehabilitation usually starts early after surgery. A physiotherapist guides you through exercises to regain strength, flexibility, and range of motion in your shoulder.
    • Swelling and bruising: Swelling and bruising around the shoulder and upper arm are common post-surgery, you can use ice and elevation to reduce them.
    • Limited mobility: Initially, your shoulder mobility will be restricted, but it will gradually improve as you progress through the rehabilitation process.
    • Driving restrictions: You may need to refrain from driving until you have adequate strength and mobility in your shoulder. Follow your surgeon’s advice on when it’s safe to resume driving.
    • Return to work and activities: The timeline for returning to work and daily activities will depend on your job and how well you’re recovering.
    • Activity restrictions: Your medical team will provide guidelines on activities to avoid during recovery, especially those that could strain the healing joint.
    • Follow-Up appointments: Regular follow-up appointments with your surgeon will be scheduled to monitor your progress and make necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
    • Full recovery timeframe: It may take several months to achieve significant improvement, and complete recovery might take up to a year.

    Possible complications: As with any surgery, there are potential risks of complications like infection, nerve injury, stiffness, or recurrent dislocations. If you notice any signs of infections, do contact your healthcare provider to avoid the chances of further complications.

    Recovery Tips after Shoulder Dislocation Surgery (Post Operative Care)

    • The doctor may suggest pain medications and antibiotics to alleviate the pain and prevent any infection at the surgical site.

    • It is suggested to use only the non-surgical arm to perform daily work for at least five to seven days after the surgery. 
    • You can begin driving after 4-6 weeks after the bankart surgery. 
    • You must avoid lifting weights with the surgical arm and any form of contact sports for at least six months after the surgery.

    FAQs about Shoulder Dislocation

    When is shoulder dislocation treatment required?

    If you are experiencing any of the following signs or symptoms, you may require immediate medical assistance for shoulder dislocation treatment-

    • Trouble moving your arm
    • Instability of the shoulder and the back
    • Severe shoulder pain
    • Swelling and bruising of your shoulder or upper arm
    • Numbness and/or weakness in your arm, neck, hand, or fingers
    • Your arm seems to be out of place
    • Muscle spasms in your shoulder

    What kind of suture anchors are used for bankart repair at Pristyn Care?

    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 anchor material for bankart or labrum tear repair.


    What are “anchors” used in Bankart Surgery?

    Anchor sutures are spiral screws usually used to fix 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.

    What does rehabilitation for bankart surgery depend on?

    It is very important to personalize the rehabilitation program based on the patient’s needs, the extent of the injury, and their normal activity level. For example, rehabilitation for an unstable shoulder after arthroscopic surgery, especially in patients with repeated shoulder joint dislocations, depends on the cause of the tear, degree of joint instability, frequency of joint dislocation, the direction of the dislocation/instability, neuromuscular control over the joint, and patient’s activity level.

    Are bankart surgeries successful?

    Arthroscopic bankart surgery repair has a 90-95% success rate. In most cases, people usually 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.

    What are the risks associated with shoulder bankart surgery?

    Though arthroscopic bankart repair operation is very safe, in rare cases, it may be associated with complications such as nerve injury, poor suture attachment, wound infection, rupture of the repair, shoulder stiffness, recurrence of the injury, and long-term complications due to low-quality anchors.


    How to fix a dislocated shoulder at home?

    Although shoulder dislocations are common, they can be serious and mostly require professional medical care. It isn’t advisable to try to pop your own shoulder or push it back in. If you have or have had a dislocated shoulder, talk to your doctor about the cause and how to prevent it from happening again.

    What is the fastest way to heal a dislocated shoulder?

    The first treatment for a dislocated shoulder is to put the upper arm bone back into the shoulder socket, which quickly brings significant pain relief. Simple therapies such as applying ice packs, taking oral pain medication, and wearing an arm sling for a few weeks can further reduce pain and swelling. In some severe cases, surgery is required.

    How to treat a dislocated shoulder?

    Treatment for dislocated shoulder depends on the severity of the condition. Some common treatment options for the dislocated shoulder are as follows:

    • Activity modification
    • Anti-inflammatory modification
    • Icing or applying heat to the shoulder joint
    • Strengthening exercises or physical therapy
    • Surgery 

    Can a dislocated shoulder heal itself?

    No, a dislocated shoulder cannot heal itself. Prompt treatment is required to properly relocate the shoulder joint and ensure proper healing and rehabilitation. If the dislocated shoulder is left untreated, it can lead to complications and long-term damage.

    What are the symptoms of shoulder dislocation?

    The symptoms of a shoulder dislocation include:

    • Severe Pain
    • Misshapen Shoulder
    • Nausea
    • Vomiting
    • Sweating
    • Swelling
    • Numbness


    Why are shoulder dislocations so common?

    The most common causes of shoulder dislocations are sports injuries, accidents, and falling on your shoulder or outstretched arm.
