SLAP Tear repair (Superior Labrum from Anterior to Posterior Tear) is an arthroscopic procedure performed to repair a tear of the biceps tendon at the point where it connects to the labrum, a ring of cartilage that surrounds the shoulder socket. A tear at this point is called a SLAP (Superior Labrum Anterior-Posterior) tear. SLAP repair is performed under general and regional anesthesia, and patients usually leave the hospital the same day.

“Dr. Keeve did a scope on my right shoulder, and I heeled fast, and he was a wonderful doctor. He explained everything to me. Raehjon was also was very helpful when I saw her. Awesome group of doctors. I would recommend them to anyone.” — Betty C.
“I just had my six-week post-op yesterday along with a full release for work. This was the second shoulder scope from Dr. Kody and I once again have full range of motion. I have in the past and will in the future recommend Dr. Kody to anyone needing knee or shoulder surgery. I am 57 and will be returning to a paper mill job, several people I work with have had career ending surgeries with poor results from shoulder surgery, I also wanted to thank the surgery center for the excellent care I received.” — Elaine C.
