Bankart Lesions

A Bankart Lesion occurs when the humerus dislocates and the labrum is torn. This can be initially treated non-operatively with a brace that can help the labrum to heal naturally. However, if this fails it can be surgically repaired using anchors and sutures. This procedure involves small incisions and limited morbidity. For more information on this condition, click here.
