Bankart repair treatment is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that is used to repair the instability of dislocated shoulder and restore its normal functioning. In order to gain an insight and better understanding as to what exactly a Bankart tear or lesion is, here is a brief overview of the shoulder. It is the humeral head and the glenoid that stabilizes our shoulder. The humeral head i.e. the ball of the shoulder joint is centrally positioned in the glenoid – the socket of the joint, and in case of shoulder dislocation, the glenoid labrum and shoulder ligaments tear off from the tip of the glenoid, thus making our shoulders weak and unstable. Thus the primary goal of a bankart surgery is to reinforce the shoulder structure by re-attaching the labrum and the ligaments to the tip of glenoid from which they got detached.
During the surgical procedure, the orthopaedic surgeon makes small incisions in the frontal and the rear portions of the shoulder. An arthroscope (fibre optic camera) is first inserted into the shoulder through the rear incision to view the precise location of the detached labrum. Special surgical instruments are inserted through the frontal incision to drill small holes near the site, clear off loose particles and re-attach the labrum using sutures and subsequently pulling them tightly across the anchors so that it can be attached to the glenoid. Once the ligaments are in place, the incisions are closed with small bandages and the surgery is complete. It takes an approximate time of 3 months for a bankart repair surgery to heal off completely.
