Labral Repair

Labral repair is a procedure performed through several small “poke-hole” incisions. Dr. Johnny T. Nelson MD will place several anchors and sutures to repair the “lip” of the socket back to the socket. This technique can lessen and cure the painful symptoms caused by a labral tear.

In some patients, a labral tear may not need a repair. This is why seeing a fellowship-trained shoulder specialist like Dr. Johnny T. Nelson is very important. Dr. Nelson offers the latest treatments in both surgical and non-surgical treatment, including regenerative options like platelet rich plasma (PRP).

Dr. Nelson trained with the world’s foremost experts in shoulder at the world-renowned Shoulder Unit at the Centre Orthopedique Santy in Lyon, France. He specializes in the diagnosis and targeted treatment of labral injuries, and if surgery is needed, will apply the most state-of-the-art and minimally invasive techniques.
