Successful Virginia Beach BMX Rider Labral Repair


Successful Virginia Beach BMX Rider Labral Repair!

Hello, my name is Ryan. I’m currently 16 years old. I ride BMX for recreational fun as well as competitively in junior tournaments. Over the past 1-2 years I’ve had multiple shoulder dislocations. They were progressively getting more and more frequent. After failed physical therapy and shoulder bracing my family and I sought out care from Dr. Carofino. I underwent a shoulder scope and labral repair on 10/21/16. I am currently 6 months out from surgery and have returned to full function with my shoulder as well as riding BMX recreationally and competitively. I can’t thank Dr. Carofino and his staff enough as I am so much more improved than I was before surgery and that my shoulder is now stable!
