What is SLAP repair?

SLAP, or Superior Labrum, Anterior to Posterior, refers to the cartilage in the shoulder joint that can get damaged or torn due to trauma or overuse, causing pain and inflammation among other symptoms. If not treated, it can cause chronic pain and severely limit the use of the arms and shoulders. SLAP repair becomes important to relieve such symptoms and restore mobility to the arms and shoulders. SLAP repair can be done through non-surgical and surgical methods of treatment, depending upon the severity and extent of the damage. The mode of treatment can be best determined by the treating doctor after discussing the symptoms with the patient.
