The shoulder ball (humerus) can sometimes be unstable in the socket (glenoid). This instability can be due to a previous injury or to having loose ligaments. The shoulder may feel like it is “slipping out of place” slightly, or it may actually come all the way out of place and require a procedure to put it back in place. This condition of instability can be very debilitating, as patients often never know when their next “slip” may occur. Dr. Bushnell has specialized training in shoulder arthroscopy with labral repair – the surgical method of restoring the stability of your shoulder. He has even done research and presentations on the international level regarding this topic.
