Shoulder Arthroscopy (Bankart’s Repair)

Bankart’s repair is a surgical technique to repair the recurrent shoulder problems. In the procedure, the torn capsules are sewed together and the socket and joint are re-attached into their proper place.

When you are faced with a anterior dislocated shoulder, you might face compilations such as bankart lesion due to an injury on the glenoid labrum of the shoulder.

How Is Bankart's Repair Procedure Performed?

Initially, the surgeon will make small incisions in the front and back of the shoulder. Small holes are drilled near the detached labrum and attach sutures to the labrum and pull them tightly across the anchors so the labrum can be reattached to the glenoid.
Once the ligaments are firmly in place, the incisions are then closed with small bandages and the surgery is complete.

Follow Up & Full Recovery

  • Operated shoulder is immobilised in an arm pouch for 6 weeks
  • Followed with physiotherapy in 2 sessions
  • From then on patient is assessed every 3 months till the 9th month


A simple one hour surgery to make sure you live pain-free till the end of time. Usually you are made mobile the next day depending upon the health of your bones and body.

Full recovery is when the patient is able to perform all of his or her activities independently, relatively pain free, like able to lift objects without any difficulty. Minimal pain may be present at the end of the first month. You would be completely cured after 3 months.

Bankert’s repair is carried out on a patient so that patient is pain free and is able to carry out activities of daily living independently. It helps to alleviate the dependency on painkillers and lead a happy life.

Once discharged the physical therapist follows the patient at home and guides through the process of rehabilitation in 2 sessions for 3 months.

Alternatives to the procedure include open surgeries that are painful and take a longer period of time to heal.
