The surgical procedure often used is arthroscopy, which has high success rates in treating joint conditions such as Bankart repair.
Arthroscopic surgery is a minimally-invasive technique that has many advantages over open surgery.
First, the surgeons use tiny incisions to insert a camera inside the affected area, which allows them to examine it before performing corrections thoroughly.
Then the surgeons insert specialized instruments through the tiny incisions to repair the damage to the shoulder at the exact point of the injury.
They will then fix all the tears that may have occurred in the muscle, tendon, or cartilage, thoroughly and any damaged tissue will be removed.
When the surgeons have finished the procedure, the incisions will be stitched closed.
How Long Does Bankart Repair Take To Heal?
After arthroscopic Bankart repair, you will need to keep your arm immobilized in a sling for approximately one month.
However, you will begin physical therapy about five days following the surgery.
