Shoulder Instability

ortho shoulderShoulder instability can be the result of a variety of factors including serious injury, repetitive strain, multidirectional instability, or the loosening of ligaments within the shoulder area.  Instability is caused when the head of the shoulder has been forced out of its socket.

WakeMed’s orthopedists will assess your movement and make a recommendation on whether surgery is required.

Many patients can benefit from minimally invasive procedures to fix problems with shoulder instability.
