The marriage of biomedical instrumentation and patient care has once again proven itself successful. The electrothermally-assisted capsular shift is a new procedure with various potential applications. Despite its embryonic stage, this procedure is being used by a handful of shoulder surgeons who are cautiously pursuing new and improved ways to prevent the common and debilitating diagnosis of shoulder instability. Follow-up thus far is short, and the current literature lacks studies that compare the time-honored conventional standard of open stabilization to this new procedure. However, those surgeons who have been using this divide are optimistic about its role in the future repair of shoulder injuries
