arthroscopic shoulder surgery
Arthroscopic surgery is one of the greatest advances in modern medical technology. Using tiny incisions, surgeons insert a small camera through which they can study an area in the body and operate on it. This minimally invasive approach allows for thorough examination, careful diagnosis and precise surgery. The procedures also results in quick healing and reduced pain and threat of infection. In the shoulder area, arthroscopic techniques are used for rotator cuff repair and surgery for impingement and instability. Each operation is different. Rotator cuff procedures typically involve bringing together muscles and attaching tendons to bone. Impingement surgery deals with tissue removal and possibly cutting a ligament and shaving bone. Instability surgery focuses on repairing part of the shoulder joint and ligaments.
