I had been operated by Dr. Prabhat Lakkireddi on Aug 16 2018 for an Arthroscopic Bankart repair surgery on my right shoulder, which is a minimally invasive surgery to repair instability and restore function of a dislocated shoulder. I live in the United States and the injury first occurred while playing volleyball and later dislocated on several occasions while swimming, basketball, cricket etc. totaling to about 6 painful dislocations. This is common in Athletes wherein a few tend to put the shoulder back into position without pain, but for me, I am well built at 6ft/ 85kgs and when the shoulder dislocates the whole body is like locked and the only position of the body is to kneel and lay my arm on the ground. The body in an uncomfortable position and the pain is immense. more..

ARTHROSCOPIC SHOULDER REPAIR is quite challenging in people who have recurrent shoulder dislocation, as LONG DELAY ALWAYS LEADS TO DAMAGE TO CARTILAGE AND ALSO THERE IS EXTENSION OF LABRAL TEAR. So best is to get it repaired after dislocation. Unfortunately human body DOESNOT HAVE A SELF HEALING REAPIR MECHANISM.
