Shoulder Labrum Repair

Tears to the shoulder labrum (the cartilage surrounding the ball and socket joint) can happen from repetitive shoulder motion or acute injury. The FiberTak anchor system is a minimally invasive system that allows orthopedic surgeons to permanently repair and stabilize the labrum.

Dr. Aaron Schwartz recommends this video, shared courtesy of medical device company Arthrex, to help patients understand and prepare for this treatment option.
