Arthroscopic Stabilisation

Arthroscopic Stabilisation (Bankart Repair) & SLAP Repair

My shoulder was injured when playing 'touch' rugby by someone who forgot it was a game of 'touch' rugby ! After a month of excrutiating pain, sleepless nights and enough pain killers to permanently put to sleep a herd of elephants, the pain eventually eased to what could be described as the shoulder equivalent of major tooth ache. It rendered a number of formerly effortless and enjoyable activities  extremely painful and uncomfortable such as driving,  jogging and even leaning against the bar . After a series of increasingly focused diagnositic tests culmunating in an NMR scan, I was diagnosed as having a labral tear and referred to a specialist consultant, Lennard Funk, by my consultant orthapedic surgeon.
Lennard  informed me of the procedure that would be necessary to repair the damage. The procedure was carried out in May 2004  that required an overnight hospital stay. I have since attended two follow-up appointments which have confirmed the success of my operation. I'm now able to undertake the activities that I previously took for granted and enjoyed.
