  • Shoulder Arthroscopy

  • A shoulder arthroscopy  is a surgical procedure that uses a tiny camera to examine the tissues in and around the shoulder joint to diagnose and treat shoulder conditions. The camera, arthroscope, is inserted into a small incision.

     

    Our orthopedic specialists provide shoulder arthroscopic procedures for problems in our patients including:

    • A torn or damaged cartilage ring or ligaments
    • Shoulder instability, where the shoulder joint is loose and slides around too much or becomes dislocated
    • A torn or damaged biceps tendon
    • A torn rotator cuff
    • A bone spur or inflammation around the rotator cuff
    • Inflammation or damaged lining of the joint
    • Arthritis of the end of the clavicle
    • Loose tissue need to be removed
    • Shoulder impingement syndrome, to make more room for the shoulder to move around

    For many procedures, physical therapy may help the patient regain motion and strength in the shoulder. The length of therapy will depend on the procedure and repair.
