Labral repair surgery is a procedure used to reverse damage to the labrum, or cartilage, in the shoulder. The head of the upper arm bone (humeral head) rests in a shallow socket in the shoulder blade, called the glenoid. A soft fibrocartilaginous tissue rim, labrum surrounds the socket like a form of “weather stripping” and deepens it by up to 50 percent so that the head of the upper arm bone fits more securely and moves easily within the socket. If the labrum is torn, it can greatly hinder movement in the shoulder while causing a tremendous amount of pain.

Loose bodies are small fragments of detached bone or cartilage that float through the body, catching or locking in the joints. The best treatment and surgery for the removal of loose bodies depends on a few important factors including age, current and past health, the extent of the loose body to be removed, the location of the loose body and any history with other medications and treatments. Sports or work injuries are the most common causes of loose bodies. Often, loose body removal is required because of degenerative diseases, such as osteoarthritis. These diseases are often found in people who use one or more of their joints an extraordinary amount, such as athletes or people whose jobs require extensive lifting, particularly overhead.
Lumbar decompression is a surgery most commonly used to treat lumbar spinal stenosis, a condition in which the spinal canal and/or vertebral foramen becomes narrowed. If the narrowing is substantial, it can cause nerve compression and result in painful symptoms. Lumbar decompression surgery removes any structures that are compressing the nerves in the lumbar (lower back) section of the spinal canal or vertebral foramen (the opening through which the spinal cord passes).
Lumbar laminectomy is a surgical procedure that is performed to alleviate persistent, often debilitating pain caused by pressure on the nerves (neural impingement), a herniated disc or a tumor on the spine.

Pain in the lumbar region of the back can restrict mobility and interfere with normal functioning and activities.
