Dr. Nelson trained with the world’s foremost experts in shoulder instability at the world-renowned Shoulder Unit at the Centre Orthopedique Santy in Lyon, France. He specializes in both arthroscopic and open surgical techniques to treat shoulder instability, and your treatment is based on how severe your symptoms are and the findings of imaging studies.
Arthroscopic stabilization is a procedure performed through several small “poke-hole” incisions, often placing several anchors and sutures to “tighten” the loose structures that allow the ball and socket to come apart.
The Latarjet procedure is a time-tested and reliable procedure performed through a small open incision at the front of your shoulder. The surgery includes moving a small piece of bone in your shoulder to build a small “bumper” to keep your ball and socket from coming apart.
