Introduction to Shoulder Surgery
Shoulder surgery is used in the treatment of rotator cuff repair, impingement syndrome, shoulder instability, bone spur removal, removal or repair of the labrum, repair of the ligaments, removal of inflamed tissue or loose cartilage, repair for recurrent shoulder dislocation, and biceps tendon repair.
Shoulder Arthroscopy Procedure
Shoulder Arthroscopy surgery uses a small camera called an arthroscope to diagnose and repair tissues inside or around a person's shoulder. Doctors create small incisions around the shoulder so that the camera can be inserted. Most patients receive general anesthesia before the surgery while others may have regional anesthesia. Regional anesthesia makes patients sleepy during surgery and numbs the area being operated on. The type of anesthesia depends on the patient’s own medical needs and the doctor. During the surgery doctors examine the problem area with the camera to assess the damage and determine the best method of treatment. Any tears in the muscle, tendon, or cartilage will be repaired and any damaged tissue will be removed.
After Shoulder Surgery
Once the surgery is over, the incisions will be closed with stitches and covered with a bandage.
