How to choose the technique of stabilizing my shoulder?

During the consultation, the surgeon will ask you about the number of dislocations, the type of dislocation, the ease of dislocation and the impact on daily life or sport.

After having examined you (mobility of the shoulder, tests of apprehension etc …) it will ask for additional examinations like X-rays but especially a arthroscanner (scanner preceded by an injection of contrast medium iodized in the articulation of the shoulder ) which makes it possible to clearly specify the ligamentous and osseous lesions.

Depending on the lesions found will be considered the technique most suited to your case and according to his surgical habits.
You can not request a particular operation unless several techniques are possible and the surgeon agrees.
