Labrum Surgery in Glenview

The function of the labrum within the shoulder joint is to deepen the socket and stabilize the ball within the socket. A tear in the labrum, particularly a posterior labral tear, can be caused by certain dislocations, falls, and repetitive overhead sports related movements. Another video on Dr. Portland's site illustrates the anatomy of the shoulder, the various parts, and what might necessitate labrum surgery in Glenview's Ravine Way Surgery Center.

Often, it is not necessary for a doctor to perform labrum surgery. In Glenview and throughout the Chicago area, doctors of the Illinois Bone and Joint Institute often recommend trials of rest, ice, activity avoidance, and physical therapy, only recommending surgery if pain persists.
