Specialty Surgeon Complete Packaged Procedure


Specialty surgeon complete packaged procedure for a bankart surgery – shoulder arthroscopy.

During the bankart surgery – shoulder arthroscopy reconstruction procedure, the labrum (which acts as a bumper on the glenoid) and capsule are reattached to the anterior margin of the glenoid cavity (the socket portion of the joint). Shoulder reconstruction surgery may be done with an open incision method or with the aid of an arthroscope.

Incisions are usually still required with arthroscopic technique, but the surgery doesn’t require the surgeon to open the joint. The arthroscope is used to view the inside of the shoulder joint as the surgeon performs the work. Many shoulder reconstructive surgeries are now done on an outpatient basis. Patients go home the same day as the surgery. After any surgery to stabilize the shoulder your shoulder will be immobilized. You will probably wear a sling for six weeks. The soft tissues must be given enough time to heal and form scar tissue to support and stabilize the shoulder joint.

Not included are diagnostic studies, Medication Prescription costs, consultations with additional specialists, and cost of complication management; travel, food, and lodging.
