Shoulder Arthroscopy is a revolutionary treatment that helps surgeons deal with various kinds of shoulder-related problems. This treatment involves less cutting of the intact tissue for the performance of repairs. As a result, the recovery rate is much faster than in the case of open surgery.
What are the different kinds of shoulder arthroscopy?
- Release of frozen shoulder.
- Repair of the rotator cuff.
- SLAP tears or repair of Glenoid labrum.
- Repair of the biceps tendon.
- Shoulder dislocation or shoulder instability repair.
- Bone spurs removal or subacromial decompression.
- Debridement arthritis.
How long does shoulder arthroscopy take?
The shoulder arthroscopy will take around forty-five minutes to an hour. After the surgery is done, you will have to stay in a room of recovery for another hour. Then, the doctor will discharge you. However, you have to ensure that you have a ride back home as you will not be in a position to drive that day.
What are the benefits of shoulder arthroscopy?
Shoulder arthroscopy is far different from the traditional approach of open surgery. The procedure involves making a small incision. Other than this, there are many benefits.
- Fast recovery.
- Low blood loss.
- Lesser damage of tissue.
- Lesser pain.
- Lesser chance of having an infection.
What happens during shoulder arthroscopy surgery?
During shoulder arthroscopy, the surgeon inserts a tiny camera in the shoulder joint to check the tissue damage. With another incision, the doctor performs the surgery while using the camera as a guiding tool. It is not much invasive and it can eliminate bone spurs, repair ligaments, and cartilage, as well as fix some tears.
