Anterior shoulder dislocation is a common traumatic event. Younger patients have increased risk for recurrent dislocations. Reduction of shoulder dislocation should be performed in a safe, convenient and patient tailored method. In young athletes with labral tear or with large engaging Hill-Sachs lesion, surgical stabilization should be considered to prevent additional dislocations. In other patients non-operative treatment with proper rehabilitation program might be considered. There is still a challenge to define the best timing and type of treatment which is most suitable for the individual patient. The method of treatment should be defined according to the patients’ age, occupation and physical activity.
