The humeral socket was a shallow socket on the scapula that the ball of the humerus fitted into.

In 2371, when Miles O'Brien tore his rotator cuff while playing darts, Doctor Bashir had to replace his entire humeral socket instead of simply popping it back into place. (DS9: "Shakaar")

The script of the episode incorrectly spelled it "humoral socket"
