Dr. George Recognized For State-Of-The-Art Arthroscopic Latarjet Procedure
Because of the dedication of Dr. Michael S. George, KSF Orthopaedic Center is proud to offer the revolutionary Arthroscopic Latarjet Procedure. Recently developed in France, the procedure is performed for patients with recurrent instability of the shoulder. When the shoulder repeatedly comes out of the socket, trauma occurs as the socket wears away and there is no longer enough bone in the socket to hold the joint. Dr. George is one of few surgeons in the country who has the expertise and experience to perform the procedure, which has many potential advantages over an open procedure.
See excerpt below:
He has perfected this technique in the lab with cadaver specimens prior to performing it on his patients as this procedure is technically challenging and requires a high level of skill and experience. Dr. George is confident that the new procedure will provide relief for his patients while allowing them to quickly regain mobility and enjoy activities that were painful prior to the procedure.
